assignFillValue Transfers the _FillValue attribute from one variable to another.
copy_VarAtts Copies all of a variable's attributes from one variable to another.
copy_VarCoords Copies all named dimensions and coordinate variables from one variable to another.
copy_VarCoords_1 Copies all named dimensions and coordinate variables from one variable to another except for the rightmost dimension.
copy_VarCoords_2 Copies all named dimensions and coordinate variables from one variable to another except for the rightmost two dimensions.
copy_VarMeta Copies all attributes, named dimensions and coordinate variables from one variable to another.
copyatt Copies all attributes, named dimensions and coordinate variables from one variable to another (deprecated version).
default_fillvalue Returns the default missing value for the given variable type.
delete_VarAtts Deletes one or more attributes associated with a variable.
extract_globalatts_hdf5 Extract value from 'KEYWORD,VALUE' pair returned by getfilevaratts_hdf5.
getFillValue Retrieves the _FillValue of a variable, if present, for use in a new statement.
getvaratts Returns a list of attribute names for the given variable or file pointer.
getVarDimNames Retrieves dimension names for a variable in memory (deprecated version).
getvardims Returns a list of dimension names for the given variable.
getVarFillValue Retrieves the missing value of a variable, otherwise, it returns the default _FillValue.
isatt Returns logical values indicating whether the given attributes are attached to the given variable.
iscoord Returns True for every input string that is a coordinate variable of the given variable.
isdim Returns True if variable dimensions are defined in the given variable.
isdimnamed Returns True if variable dimensions have names in given variable.
ismissing Returns True for every element of the input that contains a missing value.
isunlimited Returns True if the given dimension name is defined as unlimited on the given file.
nameDim Assigns given named dimensions, long_name, and units to the input variable.
parse_globalatts_hdf5 Parse a HDF5 global attribute into an array containing KEYWORDs and associated VALUEs.
set_default_fillvalue Sets the default missing value for the given variable type.
