netCDFVarID(ncid, var)
netCDFVarLen(ncid, var)
netCDFVarDouble(ncid, var)
netCDFVarInt(ncid, var)
netCDFMSPoints(ncid, scanIndex)
netCDFRawData(ncid)

Arguments

filename

path to NetCDF file

ncid

NetCDF file ID

var

NetCDF variable ID or variable name

scanIndex

double vector with scan_index from CDF file

Details

The mechanisms and structure of NetCDF files are not discussed here, please se the NetCDF documentation for more information.

Value

netCDFStrError returns the textual description of an error code.

netCDFIsFile returns TRUE if the referenced file is a NetCDF file and FALSE otherwise.

netCDFOpen returns the ncid of the opened file.

netCDFClose returns the closing status.

netCDFVarID returns the variable ID.

netCDFVarLen returns the variable length.

netCDFVarDouble and netCDFVarInt return either double or integer numeric vectors.

netCDFMSPoints returns a list with elements massValues and intensityValues, with the masses for each scan in ascending order.

netCDFRawData returns a named list with components rt, tic, scanindex, mz, and intensity.

An error in any of the functions will return an integer error code with attribute errortext containing the error description
