wgrib2: -quit


The -quit option forces a quit and the end of the processing of the current line. You would use the -quit option to save time (see 2nd example).




$ wgrib2 /tmp/pgb.f0009031206.g2 -quit
1:4:d=2009031206:HGT:1000 mb:anl:
This has the same effect as -d 1.

$ wgrib2 /tmp/pgb.f0009031206.g2 -match ":RH:1000 mb:" -quit
64:466700:d=2009031206:RH:1000 mb:anl:
This forces a quit after the first "RH:1000 mb" is processed. This can save time when there is only one match.

$ wgrib2 /tmp/pgb.f0009031206.g2  -if "^3:" -quit -if
1:4:d=2009031206:HGT:1000 mb:anl:
2:5399:d=2009031206:HGT:925 mb:anl:
3:10589:d=2009031206:HGT:850 mb:anl:
This forces the quit after the third line. This has the same effect as -for 1:3.
