Re: double precision

Hi Holger,
Ferret does almost all its computation in single precision. Only the coordinate
values of the grid are saved and used as double precision; data for variables is
read, used, and written as single precision. We're aware that this is a limitation,
but at this time there is not a way to force Ferret to do calculations in double

Hi Ferreters,

after browsing the archives and the manual I could not find out if there is a way to force ferret to do its calculations in double precision. I'm actually trying to manipulate data from a NetCDF file in which the data are stored as "double". If I save the data after the calculations are done, the resulting NetCDF file holds the variables as "float".

I would very much appreciate any comments on that!

Thanks a lot,

With best regards, Holger
