Re: problems opening GRIB file

Hi Christian,
From the error message, it appears that your GRIB file has the
extension ".grib". NCL recognizes ".grb" rather than ".grib" as the file
extension indicating a GRIB formatted file, so that may be the cause of
your problem.

You can either rename your file to "0132306000003.grb", or you
can induce NCL to treat the file as a GRIB file (whatever it happens to
be called) by adding the extension "grb" to the actual name in the
addfile call, i.e:

f = addfile("0132306000003.grib.grb","r")
