wgrib2: -set_ftime1


With wgrib2 v2.0.7, routines for generating started to shift from -ftime1 to -ftime2. Since wgrib2 needs the ability to read the time stamps, the routines that wrote the time stamps also had to shift from from -set_ftime1/-set_ave -> -set_ftime2.

The -set_ftime1 calls the old routines to set time stamp. One should not use this option because the old ftime routines could not handle more complicated time stamps and needed a rewrite (ftime2 routines). See also:
