#'Determine multi-year monthly sums.
#'
#'The function determines multi-year monthly sums from data of a single CM SAF
#'NetCDF input file.
#'
#'@param var Name of NetCDF variable (character).
#'@param infile Filename of input NetCDF file. This may include the directory
#'  (character).
#'@param outfile Filename of output NetCDF file. This may include the directory
#'  (character).
#'@param nc34 NetCDF version of output file. If \code{nc34 = 3} the output file will be
#'  in NetCDFv3 format (numeric). Default output is NetCDFv4.
#'@param overwrite logical; should existing output file be overwritten?
#'@param verbose logical; if TRUE, progress messages are shown
#'
#'@return A NetCDF file including a time series of multi-year monthly sums is
#'  written.
#'@export
