      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.
