wgrib2: -set_ijval


The -set_ijval option is used to change one grid point value of the decoded grid. After changing the grid value, one usually writes out the grid using -grib_out FILE. The -set_ijval option only works when the grid is a rectangular array. For example, staggered and thinned grids are not stored an an array.


-set_ijval I J VAL
    grid(I,J) = VAL
    I = 1..NX
    J = 1..NY
