Re: creating CDF file


I am trying to create a CDF file that will be read by ferret.  Just to see 
if I can do this, I've created a CDF file within ferret.  Then at the 
command line I have used ncdump to create a CDL file.  I use ncgen -b (and 
also other variations such as ncgen -n, ...) to make the binary netCDF 
file, but when I try to call the new CDF file within ferret I get one of two
error messages.  If I write "Use file_name", ferret responds with 
"**netCDF error: Not a netcdf file. is this a CDF file."  If I write "Use 
Data file_name" then ferret responds with "**TMAP ERR: non-existent or not on 
line. Searched $FER_DESCR and $FER_DATA for data(.des,.cdf,.nc)."

Any suggestions as to what is going on.  Thank you.
