getdap \- test driver for the libdap library

.B getdap
In the first form of the command, dereference the URL and
perform the requested operations. This includes routing
the returned information through the DAP processing
library (parsing the returned objects, et c.). If none
of a, d, or D are used with a URL, then the DAP library
routines are NOT used and the URLs contents are dumped
to standard output.

In the second form of the command, assume the files are
DataDDS objects (stored in files or read from pipes)
and process them as if -D were given. In this case the
information *must* contain valid MIME header in order
to be processed.
.IP -i 
For each URL, get the server version.
.IP -d
For each URL, get the the DDS.
.IP -a
For each URL, get the the DAS.
.IP -D
For each URL, get the the DataDDS.
.IP -x
For each URL, get the DDX object. Does not get data.
.IP -X
Request a DataDDX from the server (the DAP4 data response).
.IP -B
Build a DDX in getdap using the DDS and DAS.
.IP -v
Verbose output.
.IP -V
Version of this client; see 'i' for server version.
.IP "-c expr" 
.I expr
is a constraint expression. Used with -D/X.
You can use a `?' for the CE also.
.IP -k
Keep temporary files created by libdap.
.IP "-m num"
Request the same URL 
.I num
.IP -z
Ask the server to compress data.
.IP -s
Print Sequences using numbered rows.
.IP -M
Assume data read from a file has no MIME headers
(the default is to assume the headers are present).
.IP "-p x.y"
Set DAP protocol to 
.I x.y
.I ~/.dodsrc
.I .dodsrc
file contains various parameters that affect the runtime behavior for DAP clients.
.BR dodsrc (5)
for further details.
Specifies an alternate file or directory for the 
.I .dodsrc
Various self-explanitory messages may be issued on stderr.

The command name should have been chosen more carefully
to reflect its purpose.

The dodsrc man page needs to be written.
