The libnc-dap library is a call-for-call replacement for netcdf. It can
read and write to and from netcdf files on the local machine and it can
read from DAP2 compatible data servers running on local or remote
machines. Data served using DAP2 need not be stored in netcdf files
to be read using this replacement library.
Also included in this package is the ncdump utility, also bundled with the
original netcdf library, renamed dncdump, relinked with the library and
thus able to read from DAP2 compatible servers.
