    44The netCDF package includes an ascii format, called CDL, to make ascii files that are equivalent to netCDF files. CDL files are complete inverses of the equivalent netCDF, and vice versa. CDL is convenient since you can create, read and edit an ascii file, and then convert it to a binary netCDF file. For the netCDF documentation about CDL, see [http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/docs/netcdf.html#The-NetCDF-Data-Model Section 2.1.2 Network Common Data Form Language (CDL)], [http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/docs/netcdf.html#CDL-Syntax CDL Syntax], and [http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/docs/netcdf.html#CDL-Data-Types CDL data types]. Other parts of the complete NetCDF documentation may be useful to you.  CDL files end with extension ".cdl". NetCDF files (binary) end with extension ".nc".
