Dear NCL Supports,

  I am having an issue of reading the grib2 format files from NCEP in
the updated NCL version 5.0.0 on Fedora 9 LINUX. I was wondering if I
could get some help and shed some light on it.
  Basically, when I opened a file by

fh = addfile("gfs.t00z.pgrbf240.grib2","r")

it shows,

Variable: fh (file variable)

filename: gfs.t00z.pgrbf240
path: gfs.t00z.pgrbf240.grib2
 file global attributes:

which does not contain the header information I was looking for. I have
been using version 4.3.0 all along for the past few years and there has
not been such an issue for me. Also, there is no problem for me to read
grib1 and netCDF files with this updated version 5.0.0 of NCL.

  Thank you very much for your help.
