Description

This is a temporary function with the same calling sequence as ut_string. It is being provided for user test purposes only and potentially as a replacement function. See the 6.4.0 release notes for details. A decision will be made about this function in a future release of NCL.

This function has a bug in NCL V6.4.0 in that it wasn't calling ut_calendar_fix under the hood. This has been fixed for NCL V6.5.0.
