wgrib2: -get_int


The -get_int option prints the values of selected four-byte integers in a grib message. For example if you want to see the number of data points (section 3, octets 7-10), you could use -get_int 3 7 1. The first argument is the section number. The second is the octet number starting from 1 (consistent with WMO grib documentation) and the third is the number of integers to display. The -get_int option uses the grib format for signed 4-octet integers.
