Calculates standardized anomalies of the rightmost dimension at all other dimensions and retains metadata.

	function dim_standardize_Wrap (
		x    : numeric,  
		opt  : integer   

	return_val [dimsizes(x)] :  float or double



A variable of numeric type and any dimensionality.


Setting opt=1 means to use the population standard deviation (i.e., divide by the number of non-missing values [N]). Otherwise, the sample standard deviation is used for normalization (i.e., divide by [N-1]).


This function is identical to dim_standardize, except the return value will have metadata added based on metadata attached to x. See the dim_standardize page for full documentation and examples.
