Recently, I have to convert some ECMWF data. They are encoded in grib format. In my opinion, more difficult than netcdf format. But when I found convsh, everything becomes different. Hope this helpful.

That is good. bosomfriend, is it efficient for large datasets? Also, does it have a command line interface for linux?

I usually convert grib files using some grads tools. Also, dont you get ECMWF data in netcdf to download?

Yes, it has multi-system versions, include Linux. I just test some data about 300M, no larger one tested. It works very quickly, I think.
Also it has command line interface written in tcl, very similar to linux shell script.
Yes, ECMWF data in netcdf is available now.
PS, I like its function for interpolation.
