On data with more than 255 columns I've used list/format=stream/file=myfile.dat
to write a binary file of floats, converted the floats to ints with a home-grown
file conversion utility, wrote an ESRI .hdr file, and read the data into
ArcMap. Is that something you would also want to do?

large data sets in .cdf format that display just fine in Ferret.
What I'd like to do however, is to convert them into a format that can
be read by a standard GIS package (ArcInfo). I'm guessing that the
best way to do this is to convert it into ASCII, but in trying to do this
using the LIST command, I'm only able to get a maximum of 255 columns worth
of data. Is there a way of expanding this limit, or effecting a workaround?
It's probably an easy solution, but my lack of familiarity with the program
is holding me up. Any advice is appreciated! Thanks,
