wgrib2: -GRIB


The -GRIB option is used to copy an entire GRIB2 message (including all the submessages) to a specified file. This is useful if you want to preserve to keep the submessages. This is in contrast to the -grib option which writes submessages into its own grib message.

The -GRIB option should only be used to copy the original grib message to another file. Unlike the the -grib option, changing the metadata is not recommended.
