Have just installed Cygwin/X and NCL Version 6.0.0 (CYGWIN), and setup
the environment as per the instructions for installing and running NCL
under Cygwin/X (Windows)
(, but when running
ncl_convert2nc it reports 'Badly placed ()'s':
$ ncl -V
$ ncl xy04n.ncl

$ ncl_convert2nc nmww3.t00z.grb #Note: This is a GRIB v2 file.
Badly placed ()'s.
$ ncl_convert2nc CentralAtlantic.wind.grib #Note: This is a GRIB v1
Badly placed ()'s.
$ ncl_convert2nc akw.t12z.grib.grib2 #Note: This is a GRIB v2 file.
Badly placed ()'s.
Haven't been able to find anything in mail archives or on the Internet
to explain what the fault is.
