Hi, when I want to obtain different WRF output files plots, i have to change the .nc file name in all NCL scripts and then run calling ncl. For example: ncl T2.ncl.

Well, my question is if is it possible to make an script (I don’t know if on Python or Bash script) in which the user writes the file name, this is automatically introduced in all NCL scripts and, the most important: calling automatically all NCL scripts to obtain in different folders all plots without calling one by one.

Thank you.
