nc_create creates a new netCDF file.
If the function succeeds, the return value is the handle of the newly created netCDF file. If the function fails, the return value is -1.
ssFileName is the complete file name.
nCreateMode is NC_CLOBBER or NC_NOCLOBBER.
|NC_CLOBBER||If the file already exists, a new file will be created, erasing the old file’s contents.|
|NC_NOCLOBBER||If the file already exists, nc_create returns -1.|
The following attributes can be specified:
|NC_FORMAT_CLASSIC||0x0||creates a standard netCDF data file.|
|NC_FORMAT_PC||0x10000||The byte order of the Intel 80x86 will be used. The created files are not compatible to the netCDF file format. The advantage of this flag is that reading and writing is much faster.|
|NC_FORMAT_UP||0x20000||(Default) UniPlot data file will be created.|
If the UniPlot data file format is used (NC_FORMAT_UP) the following attributes can be specified:
|NC_COMPRESSION||0x40000||A improved data compression is used. Reading and writing is slower, but the files are approx. 30 per cent smaller.|
|NC_ZLIB_COMPRESSION||0x40000||Same as NC_COMPRESSION.|
|NC_REPACKING||0x80000||If attributes or channels are removed, the file will automatically shrink. If this flag is not set the free space will be used to new attributes and channels.|
ncid = nc_create("test.nc2"); ncid2 = nc_create("test2.nc2", NC_CLOBBER | NC_FORMAT_UP);
