The NetCDF Decoders package converts WMO GRIB products and textual bulletins
into NetCDF formatted files. This package usually works in conjunction with
the LDM package to covert incoming products to the NetCDF format without the
need to store the raw data. The gribtonc decoder converts most models in the
GRIB format. There are perl decoders for the following textual report types:
METAR, buoy, upper air, and synoptic products. This package requires the
installation of NetCDF, UDUNITS, and the Perl-NetCDF packages to work.
