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 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('','NC_WRITE');

% Perform an operation.
dimid = netcdf.defDim(ncid,'Xdim',50);

% Take file out of define mode.

% Synchronize the file to disk.
