Hi Glenn,

You can use special variable names like these if you enclose them in
single quotes:

yes? list 't'

For more info see the User's Guide, Ch.3, Sec. 1.2.
Well, that's what I thought too but it didn't work when I tried it:

yes? save/file=output.nc 'T', U, V, PV, O3
LISTing to file output.nc
**ERROR: command syntax: illegal output variable name: T
*** NOTE: Name must use letters and digits beginning with a letter
*** NOTE: X,Y,Z,Y,I,J,K,L,XBOX,... are reserved names
*** NOTE: Use the LET command to define a legal name

Unless this is something that appeared in a recent ferret as I'm using 5.22 under IRIX6? (although it wasn't mentioned under the list of changes).
