getdap - test driver for the libdap library

1mgetdap [-idaDxXBvVkzsM] [-c 4m22mexpr24m 1m] [-m 4m22mnum24m 1m] [-p 4m22mx.y24m 1m] 4m22murl24m 1m...0m

1mgetdap [-VvksM] 4m22mfile24m 1m...0m

1mgetdap 22mIn the first form of the command, dereference the URL and per-
form the requested operations. This includes routing the returned
information through the DAP processing library (parsing the returned
objects, et c.). If none of a, d, or D are used with a URL, then the
DAP library routines are NOT used and the URLs contents are dumped to
standard output.

In the second form of the command, assume the files are DataDDS objects
(stored in files or read from pipes) and process them as if -D were
given. In this case the information *must* contain valid MIME header in
order to be processed.

-i For each URL, get the server version.

-d For each URL, get the the DDS.

-a For each URL, get the the DAS.

-D For each URL, get the the DataDDS.

-x For each URL, get the DDX object. Does not get data.

-X Request a DataDDX from the server (the DAP4 data response).

-B Build a DDX in getdap using the DDS and DAS.

-v Verbose output.

-V Version of this client; see 'i' for server version.

-c expr
4mexpr24m is a constraint expression. Used with -D/X. You can use a
`?' for the CE also.

-k Keep temporary files created by libdap.

-m num Request the same URL 4mnum24m times

-z Ask the server to compress data.

-s Print Sequences using numbered rows.

-M Assume data read from a file has no MIME headers (the default is
to assume the headers are present).

-p x.y Set DAP protocol to 4mx.y0m

The 4m.dodsrc24m file contains various parameters that affect the
runtime behavior for DAP clients. See 1mdodsrc22m(5) for further

Specifies an alternate file or directory for the 4m.dodsrc24m file.

Various self-explanitory messages may be issued on stderr.

The command name should have been chosen more carefully to reflect its

The dodsrc man page needs to be written.
