Suppresses screen output. -r : Rewrite existing file. -to VAL : Conversion type (mandatory). * Use "-to FCS" for a conversion from netCDF to FCS. * Use "-to netCDF" for a conversion from FCS to netCDF. -v : Provides version info only (no conversion is performed). -z VAL : Time zone for time parameter conversion. * For FCS -> netCDF conversion only. * Use [+|-]dd:00, where dd is between 00 and 12. * Default value is "+00:00".
