Synchronize netCDF file to disk
netcdf.sync(ncid) synchronizes the state of a netCDF file to disk. The netCDF library normally buffers accesses to the underlying netCDF file, unless you specify the NC_SHARE mode when you opened the file with netcdf.open or netcdf.create. To call netcdf.sync, the netCDF file must be in data mode.
This function corresponds to the nc_sync 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.
This example creates a new netCDF file for write access, performs an operation on the file, takes the file out of define mode, and then synchronizes the file to disk.
% Create a netCDF file. ncid = netcdf.create('foo.nc','NC_WRITE'); % Perform an operation. dimid = netcdf.defDim(ncid,'Xdim',50); % Take file out of define mode. netcdf.endDef(ncid); % Synchronize the file to disk. netcdf.sync(ncid)
