I have a netCDF file which consists of a float array and a string array as verified by ncdump. In Matlab, I am able to load the float array, but I fail in loading the string array.
In particular, ncread produces an error:
Error using netcdf.getVar (line 130)
12 is not a recognized netCDF datatype.
"12" is the code for NC_STRING and it seems like Matlab can not handle that.
I'm using Matlab 2011b - any ideas what I can do?
