PP fields contributing to the same output netCDF file are aggregated into as few multidimensional netCDF variables as possible using the CF aggregation rules based on the CF data model.
The conversion is carried out internally using the python cf package, which must be installed.
>> man pp2cf >> pp2cf file.pp >> pp2cf −o output.nc file.pp >> pp2cf −d directory file.pp >> pp2cf *.pp >> pp2cf −o output.nc *.pp >> pp2cf −d directory *.pp >> pp2cf −u 7.6 file1.pp file2.pp >> export UMVERSION=7.6 >> pp2cf file1.pp file2.pp >> pp2cf −f NETCDF4 −t user_table.txt −v file.pp >> pp2cf −a messages=1 -r "squeeze=-1, ignore_ioerror=1" directory/file*.pp >> pp2cf −V
pp2cfscript is automatically placed in a location in the environment's
PATH, but its man page (
scripts/man1/pp2cf.1) needs to be manully copied to a location in the environment's
