            NetCDF is a software library, and a self-describing, machine-independent open
data format that support the creation, access, and sharing of array-oriented
scientific data.
The version 4 of NetCDF is based on the HDF5 file format. For more details on
NetCDF see

In the context of the IASI-NG project, CNES is responsible for the development
of a Scilab/NetCDF4 interface, which CNES wanted to make available to the entire
scientific community. 

The toolbox sciNetCDF is the result of this collaboration. It can read and write
NetCDF files of any version (version 4 of the format is used by default for

The toolbox provides high level functions to read/write NetCDF files natively in
Scilab in a friendly manner (data is converted automatically from Scilab to
NetCDF and inversely).
These functions are:
- nccreate
- ncwrite
- ncread
- ncwriteatt
- ncreadatt
- ncdisp

It provides also a low level interface to all the NetCDF C library functions

The forge project has a public access now.

Sorry no preview on functions yet. The full documentation of the toolbox is available in 
the integrated help of scilab. Once the toolbox installed and loaded, the help can be 
found in the sciNetCdf chapter.
