Name        : ncl
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 6.0.0
Release     : 6.fc16
URL         : http://www.ncl.ucar.edu
Summary     : NCAR Command Language and NCAR Graphics
Description :
The NCAR Command Language (NCL) is a free interpreted language designed
specifically for scientific data processing and visualization. NCL has robust
file input and output. It can read and write netCDF-3, netCDF-4 classic (as
of version 4.3.1), HDF4, binary, and ASCII data, and read HDF-EOS2, GRIB1 and
GRIB2 (as of version 4.3.0). The graphics are world class and highly
customizable.

As of version 5.0.0, NCL and NCAR Graphics are released as one package.

The software comes with a couple of useful command line tools:

  * ncl_filedump - prints the contents of supported files (netCDF, HDF,
    GRIB1, GRIB2, HDF-EOS2, and CCM History Tape)
  * ncl_convert2nc - converts one or more GRIB1, GRIB2, HDF and/or HDF-EOS
    files to netCDF formatted files.
