       NCO - netCDF Operators


       operator [ options] input-files output-file


       The netCDF Operators, or NCO are a suite of programs known as operators.  Each operator is
       a standalone, command line program which is executed at the UNIX shell-level  like,  e.g.,
       ls  or  mkdir.   The operators take netCDF (<>)
       files as input, then perform a set of operations  (e.g.,  deriving  new  data,  averaging,
       hyperslabbing,  or  metadata  manipulation)  and  produce  a  netCDF  file as output.  The
       operators are primarily designed to aid manipulation and analysis  of  gridded  scientific
       data.   The  single  command  style  of  NCO  allows users to manipulate and analyze files
       interactively and with simple scripts, avoiding the overhead (and some of the power) of  a
       higher  level  programming  environment.   The  NCO Users Guide illustrates their use with
       examples from the field of climate modeling and analysis.

       The available operators are:

              ncap2, netCDF Arithmetic Processor
              ncatted, netCDF Attribute Editor
              ncbo, netCDF Binary Operator (includes ncadd, ncsubtract, ncmultiply, ncdivide)
              nces, netCDF Ensemble Averager
              ncecat, netCDF Ensemble Concatenator
              ncflint, netCDF File Interpolator
              ncks, netCDF Kitchen Sink
              ncpdq, netCDF Permute Dimensions Quickly, Pack Data Quietly
              ncra, netCDF Record Averager
              ncrcat, netCDF Record Concatenator
              ncrename, netCDF Renamer
              ncwa, netCDF Weighted Averager.
       (Note that the "averagers" are misnamed because they perform many non-linear operations as
       well, e.g., total, minimum, maximum, RMS).

       The  operators  are as general as netCDF itself: there are no restrictions on the contents
       of the netCDF file(s) used as input.  NCO's internal routines are completely  dynamic  and
       impose  no  limit  on  the  number  or  sizes of dimensions, variables, and files.  NCO is
       designed to be used both interactively and with large batch jobs.   The  default  operator
       behavior  is  often  sufficient  for  everyday  needs, and there are numerous command line
       (i.e., run-time) options, for special cases.  NCO  works  well  on  all  modern  operating

       The full documentation for NCO is maintained as a Texinfo  manual  called  the  NCO  Users
