Return netCDF dimension name and length
[dimname, dimlen] = netcdf.inqDim(ncid,dimid)
[dimname, dimlen] = netcdf.inqDim(ncid,dimid) returns the name, dimname, and length, dimlen, of the dimension specified by dimid. If ndims is the number of dimensions defined for a netCDF file, each dimension has an ID between 0 and ndims-1. For example, the dimension identifier of the first dimension is 0, the second dimension is 1, and so on.
ncid is a netCDF file identifier returned by netcdf.create or netcdf.open.
This function corresponds to the nc_inq_dim function in the netCDF library C API. To use this function, you should be familiar with the netCDF programming paradigm. See netcdf for more information.
The example opens the example netCDF file include with MATLAB®, example.nc.
ncid = netcdf.open('example.nc','NC_NOWRITE'); % Get name and length of first dimension [dimname, dimlen] = netcdf.inqDim(ncid,0) dimname = x dimlen = 50
