wgrib2: -header, -no_header

Introduction

The -header and -no_header options sets and clears the header flag. When the header flag is set, binary and ieee is read and written using f77-style header and trailers. When a text file (as opposed to spread sheet or csv) is written, a preliminary line with the grid dimension, "nx ny", is written. The default is -header.

Usage

-header
-no_header

Example

$ wgrib2 -ens ens.grb -header -ieee data.ieee
1:0:HGT:ENS=+1
