ncswap(theSrc, theDst, theDim1, theDim2)
function ncswap(theSrc, theDst, theDim1, theDim2)

% ncswap -- Swap order of dimensions.
%  ncswap('theSrc', 'theDst', 'theDim1', 'theDim2') swaps
%   the order of 'theDim1' and 'theDim2' dimensions in all
%   participating variables of 'theSrc' file.  The result
%   is placed in 'theDst' file (new file of different name).
%  ncswap (no arguments) invokes dialogs to get the calling
%   arguments.  The routine continually asks for input until
%   a dialog's "Cancel" button is pressed.
%
% N.B. This routine needs to be upgraded to be more mindful
%  of "record" variables.  See line #112.
