       grib_set - Sets key/value pairs in gribs.


       Sets   key/value   pairs   in  the  input  grib  file  and  writes  each  message  to  the
       output_grib_file.  It fails when an error occurs (e.g. key not found).


       grib_set [options] grib_file grib_file ... output_grib_file


       -s key[:{s/d/l}]=value,key[:{s/d/l}]=value,...
              Key/values to set.  For each key a string (key:s) or a double  (key:d)  or  a  long
              (key:l) type can be defined. By default the native type is set.

       -r   Repack data. Sometimes after setting some keys involving properties
              of  the  packing  algorithm  a  repacking  of  data  is  needed.  This repacking is
              performed setting this -r option.

       -d value
              Set all the data values to "value".

       -p key[:{s/d/l}],key[:{s/d/l}],...
              Declaration of keys to print.  For each key a string (key:s) or a double (key:d) or
              a long (key:l) type can be requested. Default type is string.

       -P key[:{s/d/l}],key[:{s/d/l}],...
              As -p adding the declared keys to the default list.

       -w key[:{s/d/l}]=value,key[:{s/d/l}]=value,...    Where clause.
              Set  is only executed for grib messages matching all the key/value constraints.  If
              a grib message does not match  the  constraints  it  is  copied  unchanged  to  the
              output_grib_file.  This  behaviour  can be changed setting the option -S.  For each
              key a string (key:s) or a double (key:d) or a long (key:l)  type  can  be  defined.
              Default type is string.

       -7   Does not fail when the message has wrong length

       -S   Strict. Only grib messages matching all the constraints are copied to
              the output file

       -V   Version.

       -M   Multi-grib support off. Turn off support for multiple fields in single grib message

       -g   Copy GTS header.

       -G   GRIBEX compatibility mode.

       -f   Force. Force the execution not to fail on error.

       -v   Verbose.
