wgrib2: -no_flush


The -no_flush option causes wgrib2 to flush the output buffers when the buffers are full or the program ends. This is the opposite of the The -flush option.

The only practical use of this option would be in a non-POSIX system where the flush mode is turned on, you are not using output pipes, and you wanted to speed up the output. For this option to be effective, the option has to be the last option that uses a file. (Opening a file can update the flush mode.)
