Re: [ferret_users] how to convert decimal date to date and time

Hi Yogesh,
            To have a better answer to your question, please give the 
following basic details :

   1. In 2006.121918, what does the ".121918" stands for? does it mean
       month=12, day=19, hours=18?

       or is it a fraction found by deviding month, day, hour, minute and
       second with the year length and adding together?

   2. What is the calendar type? Julian, Gregorian, Noleap ....?

   3. What all other variables you have in the ascii file? Please provide
         the first few datalines.
