       --data <descriptor=value[+]> Set (first) data value in section 4 for
                        descriptor. A trailing '+' means that the value
                        should be added to existing value. Use 'missing'
                        to set a missing value. Repeat the option if more
                        sequence descriptors are to be set. Example:
                        --data 004004=-1+ --data 004005=50 --data
                        012101=missing This will set the data value for
                        first (and only first!) occurrence of these 3
                        descriptors in every subset and every message in
                        <bufr file> to the given value (subtracting 1 from
                        the existing value for 004004)
       --bufr_edition <value> Set BUFR edition to <value>. If the new edition
                        involves some metadata not present in the old edition,
                        some educated guesses for these new metadata are made,
                        but you should also consider setting these new metadata
       --centre <value> Set originating centre to <value>
       --subcentre <value>
                        Set originating subcentre to <value>
       --update_number <value>
                        Set update sequence number to <value>. Use the special
                        value -1 to increment existing update sequence number,
                        -2 to decrement it
       --category <value> Set data category to <value>
       --subcategory <value> Set data sub-category to <value>
       --int_subcategory <value> Set international data sub-category to <value>
       --loc_subcategory <value> Set local data sub-category to <value>
       --master_table_version <value>
                        Set master table version number to <value>
       --local_table_version <value>
                        Set local table version number to <value>
       --<time_var> <value> Set <time_var> (= year | year_of_century | month |
                        day | hour | minute | second) in section 1 to <value>
       --observed 0|1   Set observed data in section 3 to 0 or 1
       --compress 0|1   Set compression in section 3 to 0 or 1
       --remove_sec2    Remove optional section 2 if present
       --remove_qc      Remove all quality control information,
                        i.e. remove all descriptors from 222000 on
       --outfile <filename>
                        Will print to <filename> instead of STDOUT
       --strict_checking n   n=0 (default) Disable strict checking of BUFR format
                             n=1 Issue warning if (recoverable) error in
                                 BUFR format
                             n=2 Croak if (recoverable) error in BUFR format.
                                 Nothing more in this message will be
       --tableformat    Currently supported are BUFRDC and ECCODES (default is BUFRDC)
       --tablepath <path to BUFR tables>
                        Set path to BUFR tables (overrides $ENV{BUFR_TABLES})
       --verbose n      Set verbose level to n, 0<=n<=6 (default 0). Verbose
                        output is sent to STDOUT, so ought to be combined with
                        option --outfile
       --help           Display Usage and explain the options used. Almost
                        the same as consulting perldoc

    Options may be abbreviated, e.g. "--he" or "-he" for "--help".

    To avoid having to use the "--tablepath" option, you are adviced to set
    the environment variable BUFR_TABLES to the directory where your BUFR
    tables are located (unless the default path provided by
    works for you). For tableformat ECCODES, se
    for more info on how to set "--tablepath" (or BUFR_TABLES). · Last modified: 2019-02-16 08:08:04 by pals
