Copy variable values between netCDF files
modifyNcdfCopyVar copies all values of one variable from one netCDF file to another netCDF file and takes care of dimensions etc. .
modifyNcdfCopyVar(file.con.orig, file.con.copy = file.con.orig, var.id.orig, var.id.copy = var.id.orig)
a NetCDF object pointing to the original netCDF file FROM which to copy the variable.
a NetCDF object pointing to the netCDF file TO which to copy the variable.
character string or netCDF variable id: The name or id of the variable to copy from.
character string or netCDF variable id: The name or id of the variable to copy to.
Two cases are implemented:
Case 1: copy of one variable and attributes from one file to another file: The dimensions of the variable to copy have to be also existent (i.e. dimensions with the same name (not necessarily id)) in the netCDF file to which the variable should be copied. In addition these dimensions have to have the same sizes.
Case 2: copy of one variable to another one (of different name) in the same file.
Nothing is returned
