An array with one or more dimensions. The dim-th dimension dimension will be the dimension on which the unweighted running average is performed. Missing values should be indicated by x@_FillValue. If x@_FillValue is not set, then the NCL default (appropriate to the type of x) will be assumed.


Number of points to be included in the running average.


End-point option (opt = 0 is the most common option)

See runave_n for a detailed description on opt.


A scalar integer indicating which dimension of x to do the calculation on. Dimension numbering starts at 0.


This function is identical to runave_n, except the return value will have metadata added based on metadata attached to x. See the runave_n page for full documentation and examples.
