GRIB_SET

GRIB_SET

The GRIB_SET procedure sets the value of a scalar key in a GRIB message.

Examples


This example procedure reads the GRIB file filename_in, sets key/value pairs, and writes the output to the file filename_out.

Set the KEY keyword to a case-sensitive string. If KEY is set, VALUE must be set.

Set the VALUE keyword to the KEY value. If VALUE is set, KEY must be set.

PRO GRIB_WRITE_EX, filename_in, filename_out, KEY=key, VALUE=value
  ON_ERROR, 2
  IF(filename_in EQ !null) THEN MESSAGE, 'File is undefined.'
  IF(filename_out EQ !null) THEN MESSAGE, 'File is undefined.'
 
  IF(ARG_PRESENT(key) AND ~ ARG_PRESENT(value)) $
    THEN MESSAGE, 'If key is set then value has to be set.'
  IF(ARG_PRESENT(value) AND ~ ARG_PRESENT(key)) $
    THEN MESSAGE, 'If value is set then key has to be set.'
 
  fin = GRIB_OPEN(filename_in)
  h = GRIB_NEW_FROM_FILE(fin)
 
  IF (ARG_PRESENT(key)) THEN BEGIN
    IF (ISA(value, /ARRAY)) THEN GRIB_SET_ARRAY, h, key, value $
      ELSE GRIB_SET, h, key, value
  ENDIF
