Interpolates a scalar quantity from one Gaussian grid to another (with optional truncation) (retains metadata).

	function g2gsh_Wrap (
		grid        : numeric,  
		outdims [2] : integer,  
		twave   [1] : integer   

	return_val  :  float or double



An array of 2 or more dimensions whose rightmost two dimensions must be latitude x longitude. The values must be in ascending latitude order.


An array indicating the dimensions of the rightmost two dimensions of the output grid (outdims[0] = nlatb, outdims[1] = nlonb).


A scalar integer indicating the optional wave truncation:

    twave = 0 => exact interpolation
    twave > 0 => exact interpolation and triangular truncation at twave
    twave < 0 => exact interpolation, triangular truncation at twave and spectral coefficient tapering (the effect is to smooth the data)


This function is identical to g2gsh, except the return value will have metadata added based on metadata attached to grid. See the g2gsh page for full documentation and examples.
