This script loads netCDF files into MATLAB and displays info about the dimensions and variables.
The code should at least work on ERA-40, ERA-interim and NCEP/NCAR reanalysis data.
I wrote the script since I can't find a function in the built-in set of netCDF functions included in MATLAB that displays all header info of the file, equivalent to the old 'ncdump' function.

Changed the info about the script
Just added in the description the fact that the code is only tested on ERA-40, ERA-interim and NCEP/NCAR reanalysis data.
The first part (the load and display part) should work for any netCDF-file I would imagine.
