Re: [ferret_users] can not read two ascii files

Hi Addisu -

Ferret allows the use of several data sets with variables that might have the exact same name (for example if you have two runs of a model, both might have the variable "u"). Thus, if more than one data set is brought in, the variables must be identified by data set name as well as variable name.

plot/d=1 first


plot first[d=1]


plot/d=file1 first

or suppose you have several data sets and want to plot an overlay:

plot first[d=1],second[d=2],third[d=3]

Dear Ferret users

I am just beggining to use ferret. I have to file to call into ferret, file1 and file2.
I used the command:
FILE/VAR=first       file1

FILE/VAR=second  file2

When I tried to plot "second", it plots it but when I tried to plot "first" I get the error

 **ERROR: variable unknown or not in data set: first

The first file, file1 apparently does not exist any more as soon as I load the second file, file2

Why is that ?
