GRIB indexing


The API regarding the GRIB indexing is experimental, things may change.

In addition to reading GRIB from local or remote sources, CliMetLab can also use a precomputed index, avoiding the need to parse the GRIB file to know its content. Using this index allows partial read of local or remote files, and merging of mutliple GRIB sources.

CliMetLab can also create GRIB index files through its command line interface.
