5.1.4.  VAR_SIZE

The variable attribute VAR_SIZE has a multiple field entry containing the sizes of each dimension of the variable. In the following example 2, the dependent variable is reported in four independent dimensions (time, x, y, z) on a grid of 10*2*3*4 nodes. For VAR_DATA_TYPE = STRING (cf. Section 5.1.6) the string length does not count as a dimension.


Type: INTEGER(s)

Entry: n semicolon-separated fields, one field per dimension

Format: Integer1;Integer2;Integer3;…

Example 1: VAR_SIZE= 2376

Example 2: VAR_SIZE= 10;2;3;4
