Re: [ferret_users] LIST/format=stream/single -- precision?

Hi Russ,

Ah!  Thanks!

But, then, what determines that the variable SST should be written in
double precision?  In the example I gave, the variable SST in the
original data (coads_climatology) is in single precision.  I haven't
found a description of this point.

I've just recalled the OUTTYPE qualifier for LIST but the
documentation says it applies only to netCDF.  I wish it applied to
"stream" and "unformatted" outputs, too.
