DESCRIPTION

       ncra averages record variables across an arbitrary number  of  input  files.   The  record
       dimension is retained as a degenerate (size 1) dimension in the output variables.

       Input  files  may  vary  in  size,  but  each  must  have  a record dimension.  The record
       coordinate, if any, should be monotonic for (or else non-fatal warnings may be generated).
       Hyperslabs of the record dimension which include more than one file are handled correctly.
       ncra supports the stride argument to the -d hyperslab  option  for  the  record  dimension
       only, stride is not supported for non-record dimensions.

       ncra  weights  each  record  (e.g., time slice) in the input-files equally.  ncra does not
       attempt to see if, say, the time coordinate is irregularly spaced and thus would require a
       weighted average in order to be a true time average.

EXAMPLES

       Average  files 85.nc, 86.nc,  ...  89.nc along the record dimension, and store the results
       in 8589.nc:
              ncra 85.nc 86.nc 87.nc 88.nc 89.nc 8589.nc
              ncra 8[56789].nc 8589.nc
              ncra -n 5,2,1 85.nc 8589.nc
       These three methods produce identical answers.

       Assume the files 85.nc, 86.nc,  ...  89.nc each contain a record coordinate time of length
       12  defined  such  that the third record in 86.nc contains data from March 1986, etc.  NCO
       knows how to hyperslab the record dimension across files.   Thus,  to  average  data  from
       December, 1985 through February, 1986:
              ncra -d time,11,13 85.nc 86.nc 87.nc 8512_8602.nc
              ncra -F -d time,12,14 85.nc 86.nc 87.nc 8512_8602.nc
       The  file  87.nc is superfluous, but does not cause an error.  The -F turns on the Fortran
       (1-based) indexing convention.  The following uses the stride option to  average  all  the
       March temperature data from multiple input files into a single output file
              ncra -F -d time,3,,12 -v temperature 85.nc 86.nc 87.nc 858687_03.nc

       Assume  the  time  coordinate  is  incrementally  numbered such that January, 1985 = 1 and
       December, 1989 = 60.  Assuming ??  only expands to the five desired files,  the  following
       averages June, 1985--June, 1989:
              ncra -d time,6.,54. ??.nc 8506_8906.nc
