trying to define the time axis `"from_data" for some 21 years of hourly data (i.e. 184080 time steps) by
let hours = 24*(days1900(year,month,day) - days1900(1978,1,1)) + hour
define axis/T/units="hours"/name=time/from_data/T0="1-Jan-1978" hours
I got the following error message:
**ERROR: a program limit has been reached: axis coordinate storage exhausted - restart FERRET
Trying time slices I found that the error occured using hours[l=1:124744] and beyond.
Everything worked fine using the direct definition for the full time
def axis/t="1-jan-1978:01:00":"1-jan-1999:00:00":1/T0="1-Jan-1978"/units="hours" time
But this was only applicable since the data are given with a constant time step without any gaps.
Now I am wondering how to define a time axis for a very large data record with irregular time steps. Any suggestions?
