Re: [ferret_users] how to open lots of files?

Hi Isabel,
Yanhgxing is quite right. You can set up a single file which will allow you open your data as a single dataset. This is called a mc file (multi-CDF file)  also known as a "descriptor file".  There are tools to help you create this file. 

A more recent link for the Ferret documentation is

And the section to read for directions on hoe to create a descriptor file is at

   You may have to create a MC file which describes a collection of CDF files.
For more details, see http://ferret.pmel.noaa.gov/FERRET_17sep07/Documentation/Users_Guide/v602/fer_html.htm
   Hopefully this can help you.

I've been working with oceanic data files
from SODA v.2.0.2, those files are .cdf. There are 528 files
and each one represents a single month. Is there any way to
open them simultaneously using a single file, so that
they'd follow a chronological order?? Something like a
template file (GrADS)?
thanks for your attention,
