Interface for NetCDF visualisation

ncdim(theDimname, theDimsize, theNetcdf)
function self = ncdim(theDimname, theDimsize, theNetcdf)

% ncdim/ncdim -- Constructor for ncdim class.
%  ncdim(theDimname, theDimsize, theNetcdf) defines a new ncdim
%   object with theDimname and theDimsize in theNetcdf, a netcdf
%   object.  The equivalent redirection syntax is
%   theNetcdf < ncdim(theDimname, theDimsize).  The result is
%   assigned silently to 'ans" if no output argument is given.
%  ncdim(theDimname, theNetcdf) returns a new ncdim object
%   corresponding to theDimname in theNetcdf, a netcdf or
%   ncvar object.
%  ncdim (no argument) returns a raw "ncdim" object.
