Interface for NetCDF visualisation

% ncextract -- GUI for NetCDF data extraction.
%  ncextract(theNCObject, 'theOutputName') presents a dialog
%   for guiding the extraction of the values associated with
%   theNCObject, a NetCDF variable or attribute object.  The
%   optional output-name defaults to "ans" in the "base"
%   workspace, unless an actual output argument is provided.
