wgrib2: -set_ftime1


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

wgrib2 v2.0.7

The shift to the new routines has started.
  1. -ftime remains the old version which will change in the future
  2. -ftime1 is the old version
  3. -ftime2 is the preliminary new version
  4. -set_ftime remains the old version which will change in the future
  5. -set_ftime1 is the old version
  6. -set_ave is unchanged
  7. -set_ftime2 is the preliminary replacement of -set_ftime1/-set_ave
In the future, -ftime will point to -ftime2 and -set_ftime will point to -set_ftime2.
