Thanks but I was looking for the dataset title, not the variable title. Here's what it looks like in a 'ncdump -h':
// global attributes:
:title = "MERCATOR PSY2V1R1 SECTION ATL Gulf Cadiz" ;
And I know Ferret knows about it because I see it when I do a SHOW DATA/FULL. It appears on standard output plots but I'm not doing a standard output plot! However, I'd still like to display the title on my non-standard plot.
Is there a way in Ferret to gain access to the global "title" attribute?Yes, it is in the PlotPlus symbol LABTIT (use "ppl listsym") and you can get at it using, for example plot/title="my title"/i=1:10 1/i sho sym ($LABTIT) !-> sho sym my title !or, depending what you want to do with it, as a string let title = "($LABTIT)" !-> DEFINE VARIABLE title = "my title" list (title) VARIABLE : "my title" "my title" |Please note NEW E-Mail Address| |!!!
