tscalar
function tscalar

% tscalar -- Test NetCDF scalar values.
%  tscalar (no arguments) writes the value 99 into
%   several variables for each NetCDF datatype, then
%   reads and tests the data after reopening the
%   file.  The tested variables have lengths of 0
%   (scalar), 1, and 2.  Errors are noted, if any.
%   Note: ascii(99) = "c".
