Displays program states and stored values.
Command qualifiers for SHOW:
Executes all SHOW options. This command gives a complete description of the current state, including information about region, grids, axes, variables, and the state of various modes (default or set with SET MODE).
The names of variables, data sets, or other definitions can be specified using wildcards. The * wildcard matches any number of characters in the name; the question wildcard matches exactly one character.
Lists all command aliases and the full command names for which they stand, or, with an argument, shows a specified command alias.
yes? SHOW ALIAS [alias_name]
/ALL /DATASET /OUTPUT
yes? SHOW ATTRIBUTE varname.attname
yes? SHOW ATTRIBUTE/ALL varname
yes? SHOW ATTRIBUTE/D=1/ALL varname
yes? SHOW ATTRIBUTE/OUTPUT varname
Shows the attribute(s) for a variable. This command is included for convenience; it does not add any capabilities beyond the LIST command, but is useful especially with the /ALL qualifier for a quick look at what attributes a variable has. The /OUTPUT qualifer adds to each line the flag showing whether the attribute is marked for writin to netCDF files.
See the section on access to dataset and variable attributes.
Simplified versions of this command:
yes? SHOW ATTRIBUTE datset_specifier ! acts the same as SHOW DATA/ATTRIBUTES dataset
yes? SHOW ATTRIBUTE varname ! acts the same as SHOW ATTRIBUTE/ALL varname
Shows a basic description of the named axis.
SHOW AXIS[/qualifiers] axis_name
A typical output appears below. The columns are:
name of axis (used also in DEFINE AXIS and DEFINE GRID)
number of points on axis; "r" or "i" for regular or irregular spacing, "m" if the axis is "modulo" (repeating)
the orientation of the axis; "(-)" after the "r" or "i" on a depth axis indicates increasing downward
position of first point on the axis
position of last point on the axis
The axis span (length of the axis), and for modulo axes, the modulo length are also given.
yes? SHOW AXIS PSXT name axis # pts start end PSXT LONGITUDE 160 r 130.5E 70.5W Axis span (to cell edges) = 360 (modulo length = axis span)
yes? SHOW AXIS/I=1:2 COADSX name axis # pts start end COADSX LONGITUDE 180mr 21E 19E(379) Axis span (to cell edges) = 360 (modulo length = axis span) I X XBOX XBOXLO 1> 21E 2 20E 2> 23E 2 22E
Command qualifiers for SHOW AXIS:
Displays the coordinates and grid box sizes for the specified axis. Optionally, low and high limits and a delta value may be specified to restrict the range of values displayed.
yes? SHOW AXIS/X[=lo:hi:delta] axis-name
To list dates in ISO 8601 time format, first issue the command SET MODE DATE_FORMAT:ISO
yes? SHOW AXIS/L=1:12:3 my_custom_time_axis
yes? SHOW AXIS/ALL
yes? SH AXIS/XML fnocx <axis name="FNOCX"> <units>degrees_east</units> <length>144</length> <start>20E</start> <end>17.5E(377.5)</end> <point_spacing>even</point_spacing> <modulo>yes</modulo </axis>
These qualifiers are for writing the xml output of SHOW AXIS/XML to a file, and controlling whether that file is new (/CLOBBER) or an existing file to be added to (/APPEND).
SHOW COMMAND [command_name or partial_command]
Note: This is the most reliable way to view command qualifiers. The output of this command will be current even when this manual is out of date.
/ALL lists all of the commands. This is the default.
/BRIEF lists only the command and sub-command names, with no qualifiers.
yes? SHOW COMMAND ! show all commands yes? SHOW COMMAND SH ! show the first command matched that starts with "S" (the SET command). yes? SHOW COMMAND PLOT ! shows command PLOT and all its qualifiers yes? SHOW COMMAND SHO DAT ! shows only the sub-command SHOW DATA and its qualifiers yes? SHOW COMMAND/BRIEF ! show only the commands yes? SHOW COMMAND/BRIEF SHOW ! show only the SHOW command, with its sub-commands, but no qualifiers.
/ALL /BRIEF /MEMBERS /FULL /VARIABLE /ATTRIBUTES /XML /OUTFILE /APPEND /CLOBBER
Shows information about the data sets which have been SET and indicates the current default data set. By default the variables and their subscript ranges are also listed.
yes? SHOW DATA[/qualifiers] [set_name_or_number1,set2,...]
If no data set name or number is specified then all SET data sets are shown.
If an ENSEMBLE or FMRC aggregation is defined, then the dataset number may be given as agg.member; that is if the aggregation is datset 12, then "SHOW DATA 12.3" lists information about member number 3 of the aggregation.
Command qualifiers for SHOW DATA_SET:
This qualifier has no effect on this command; it exists for compatibility reasons.
SHOW ATTRIBUTES dataset
Makes an expanded listing which includes the global and variable attributes, the attribute types, sizes, and the output flag for each (See the section on access to dataset and variable attributes.
Displays the names of the data files for this data set and the ranges of time steps contained in each. Output is formatted as date strings or as time step values depending on the state of MODE CALENDAR. Previously this qualifier was /FILES, which is deprecated. If SHOW DATA/MEMBERS/BRIEF lists only the dataset names for the member datasets.
If an ensemble (or aggregate) dataset has been defined with DEFINE DATA/HIDE, then the member datasets will be hidden by default on a SHOW DATA command. SHOW DATA/HIDDEN causes all open datasets to be shown.
In addition to the information given by the SHOW DATA command with no qualifiers, this query also provides the grid name and world coordinate limits for each variable in the data set.
SHOW DATA/XML/OUTFILE=filename.xml/APPEND /CLOBBER
For netCDF files, including those accessed via DODS, SHOW DATA/XML and SHOW DATA/VAR/XML list information about the file and variables as xml-style output. The /OUTFILE, /APPEND /CLOBBER qualifiers allow for this output to be written to a file.
Example: SHOW DATA
SHOW DATA produces a listing similar to the one below. The output begins with the descriptor file name (for TMAP-formatted data) and data set title. The columns I, J, K, and L give the subscript limits for each variable with respect to its defining grid (use SHOW DATA/FULL and SHOW GRID variable_name for more information). If the data had an E or F axis, all 6 dimensions would be shown
yes? SHOW DATA currently SET data sets: 1> /home/users/tmap/ferret/linux/fer_dsets/data/levitus_climatology.cdf (default) name title I J K L TEMP TEMPERATURE 1:360 1:180 1:20 ... SALT SALINITY 1:360 1:180 1:20 ...

The feature-type is noted, and the variables shown as either by-feature variables such as the ID, and observation variables with the total size of the contiguouis ragged array storage. SHOW DATA/VARIABLES adds a block of text at the end of the output summarizing the coordinate ranges for the coordinate data in the dataset.
Example: SHOW DATA/XML, SHOW DATA/VARIABLES/XML
yes? USE monthly_navy_winds yes? SHOW DATA/XML <dataset> <title> </title> <vname>UWND</vname> <vname>VWND</vname> </dataset> yes?

Shows the current expression(s) implied or set with SET EXPRESSION. If not explicitly set with this command, the default current context expression is the argument of the most recent "action" command (PLOT, SHADE, CONTOUR, VECTOR, WIRE, etc.) See the chapter "Variables and Expressions", section "Expressions" for an explanation and list of action commands.
yes? SHOW EXPRESSION
/ALL /BRIEF /EXTERNAL /INTERNAL /DETAILS
Shows a complete list of the functions defined in Ferret including descriptions of the function arguments.
yes? SHOW FUNCTION[/qualifiers] [function_name]
If no qualifier or function name is given then all functions are listed. SHOW FUNCTION will accept name templates such as
yes? SHOW FUNCTION *days* DAYS1900(year,month,day) days elapsed since 1-Jan-1900 DAYS1900TOYMDHMS(day1900) Convert Julian day to values y,m,d,h,m,s on k=1,...,6 day1900: Julian day counted from 1-jan-1900
The parameter(s) may be the name of a function, with * replacing part of the string as above.
Command qualifiers for SHOW FUNCTION:
List only the available Ferret External Functions. However, this also lists functions that were developed as external functions but are now linked internally as part of the Ferret executable.
yes? SHOW FUNCTION/DETAILS SAMPLEXY SAMPLEXY(DAT_TO_SAMPLE,XPTS,YPTS) Returns data sampled at a set of (X,Y) points, using linear interpolation Axes of result: X: ABSTRACT (result will occupy indices 1...N) Y: NORMAL (no axis) Z: inherited from argument(s) T: inherited from argument(s) E: inherited from argument(s) F: inherited from argument(s) DAT_TO_SAMPLE: variable (x,y,z,t,e,f) to sample (FLOAT) Influence on output axes: X: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") Y: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") Z: passed to result grid T: passed to result grid E: passed to result grid F: passed to result grid XPTS: X values of sample points (FLOAT) Influence on output axes: X: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") Y: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") Z: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") T: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") E: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") F: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") YPTS: Y values of sample points (FLOAT) Influence on output axes: X: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") Y: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") Z: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") T: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") E: no influence (indicate argument limits with "") F: no influence (indicate argument limits with "")

The parameter(s) may be the name of one or more grid(s) or variable(s). If no parameter is given SHOW GRID displays the grid of the last variable accessed. This is the only mechanism to display the grid of an algebraic expression.
Note: To apply SHOW GRID to an algebraic expression it is necessary for Ferret to have evaluated the expression in a previous command. The command LOAD is useful for this purpose in some circumstances.
Command qualifiers for SHOW GRID:
Displays the coordinates and grid box sizes for the specified axis. Optionally, low and high limits and a delta value may be specified to restrict the range of values displayed. The argument may be an expression.

Command qualifiers for SHOW MEMORY:
The output shows the file variable that has been loaded into memory, the user-defined variable "myvar", and the expressions that are part of the definition of "myvar". There is a summary of the memory usage, and each variable is listed with its total size, the indices and world coordinates of its region. If a split/gather operation was used in loading the variable, each of the chunks will be listed, along with the final result that was assembled from the chunks. See Understanding Ferret Memory Management Concepts and Tools for further discussion.

Summarizes current memory usage. See Understanding Ferret Memory Management Concepts and Tools for further discussion.
Lists the variables cached in memory and cataloged as permanent. These variables will not be deleted even when memory space is needed. They become cataloged in memory as permanent when the LOAD/PERMANENT command is used.
Following a memory-intensive command SHOW MEMORY/DIAGNOSTIC can be used to see how the calculation was broken into fragments small enough to fit within the given SET MEMORY/SIZE= limits. The section See Understanding Ferret Memory Management Concepts and Tools provides in-depth discussion.
The “Last gather” in this example session shows that Ferret split the calculation of T=@AVE into fragments of size 5 points along the T axis in order to fit it into the given memory size of 10 MegaWords.

Lists the current settings for the NetCDF chunk CACHE. (Ferret v6.6 and higher). The chunk cache size is listed in mbytes. The current default set by the netcdf4.1 library is 4.1943 Mbytes. For more about the role of n_elems and preemption, see the NetCDF documentation
yes? SHOW NCCACHE Current NCDF Chunk Cache size 4.1943 MB, n_elems = 1009, preemption = 75
Queries are a vehicle for communication between Ferret and a stand-alone interface program. They are not supported for general use.
yes? SHOW REGION[/ALL] [region_name]
The region displayed is formatted appropriately for the axes of the last data accessed. For example, suppose the region along the Y axis was specified as Y=5S:5N. Then if the Y axis of the last data accessed is in units of degrees-latitude the Y location is shown as Y=5S:5N but if the Y axis of the last data accessed is "ABSTRACT" then the Y location is shown as Y=-5:5.
Shows the value of one or more symbols (string variables).
yes? SHOW SYMBOL[/qualifier] [symbol_name]
If no qualifier or symbol name is given then all defined symbols are listed. SHOW SYMBOL will accept partial names such as
yes? SHOW SYMBOL *lab* MY_X_LABEL = "Sample Number" LABEL_2 = "Station at 23N"
The parameter may be the name of a symbol, with * replacing part of the string as above.
Command qualifiers for SHOW SYMBOL:
Lists all symbols that are defined.
Shows the current PyFerret text settings, including any group settings that are different from the main defaults.

yes? SHOW TRANSFORM
Note: This is the most reliable way to view transformations. The output of this command will be current even when this manual is out of date.
/ALL /DATASET /DIAGNOSTIC /USER /XML /OUTFILE /APPEND /CLOBBER /TREE
Lists diagnostic or user-defined variables.
SHOW VARIABLES[/qualifier] [partial_name]
yes? SHOW VARIABLES !all user-defined variables yes? SHOW VAR/DIAG Q !all diagnostic vars beginning with Q
Command qualifiers for SHOW VARIABLES:
SHOW VARIABLES/XML /OUTFILE=filename.xml /APPEND /CLOBBER
List the variable for all currently defined user-defined variables in XML-style. /OUTFILE /APPEND, and /CLOBBER allow for this to be written to a file.
SHOW VARIABLE/TREE [=ALL] [=FILE] [=USER (default)] [expression1, expr2, expr3, ...]
Lists variables in the form of a "tree" in order to show the inter-dependencies of the variables. By default only user-defined ("LET") variables will be displayed. The /TREE=ALL option will include the file variables that must be accessed in order to compute the variable at the top of the tree. The /TREE=FILE will provide a simple list, without tree formatting, of only the file variables upon which the tree depends.
The SHOW VARIABLE/TREE command (hereafter referred to by its command alias, VTREE) will show the tree of dependencies even in cases where the variable is not computable due to the following factors: unknown variable names, unknown dataset names or numbers, erroneous definitions due to recursive definitions or syntax errors. If any of these errors are encountered in the variable tree then the offending variable name is displayed in its proper place in the tree together with a let comment explaining the nature of the problem
The inter-connectedness of variables in a tree depends upon the current default dataset. The current default dataset can be specified through the SET DATA command or through the /DATA_SET= qualifier. For example, suppose that dataset file1.nc contains a variable named V but dataset file2.nc does not. If the variable Vp1 is defined by "LET Vp1 = V + 1", then VTREE=ALL/DATA_SET=file1 Vp1 will show V as a file variable, whereas the same command with /DATA_SET=file2 will show V as an unknown variable name.
When VTREE is asked to display multiple trees it will show them in order of largest tree to smallest. If the definition of a variable is displayed as part of a larger tree, it will not be displayed again as a separate variable. If the VTREE command is given with no argument it will display all of the LET variables known in the default dataset. If the VTREE command is given with multiple arguments it will process all of the given arguments as a group and attempt to minimize duplication.
Here is an example illustrating the VTREE output
yes? go polytube_demo . . . yes? VTREE xtrack XTRACK = IF L LE 70 THEN XSTRAIGHT ELSE XLEG3 XSTRAIGHT = IF L LE 50 THEN XLEG1 ELSE XLEG2 XLEG1 = X0 + (L-1)*(X1-X0)/50 X0 = 240 X1 = 180 XLEG2 = X1 + (L-51)*(X2-X1)/20 X1 = (defined above) X2 = 150 XLEG3 = X2+R0 - RADIUS * COS(LCURVE/12) X2 = (defined above) R0 = 35 RADIUS = R0 - LCURVE/3 R0 = (defined above) LCURVE = L-71 LCURVE = (defined above)
If variables or datasets that the variable depends upon are not available, VTREE will report those dependencies. Continuing the example above; if a variable hasn't been define:
yes? cancel variable xleg2 yes? Vtree xtrack XTRACK = IF L LE 70 THEN XSTRAIGHT ELSE XLEG3 XSTRAIGHT = IF L LE 50 THEN XLEG1 ELSE XLEG2 XLEG1 = X0 + (L-1)*(X1-X0)/50 X0 = 240 X1 = 180 XLEG2 ?? <== UNKNOWN VARIABLE ****** XLEG3 = X2+R0 - RADIUS * COS(LCURVE/12) X2 = 150 R0 = 35 RADIUS = R0 - LCURVE/3 R0 = (defined above) LCURVE = L-71 LCURVE = (defined above)
Regridding dependencies are reported as well.

Shows one or more of the currently defined viewports. Omitting an argument gives information on all viewports.
yes? SHOW VIEWPORT [view_name1,view_name2,...]
yes? DEFINE VIEWPORT/AXES/XLIM=0:0.5/YLIM=0.3:0.8 leftmid yes? SHOW VIEWPORT left* name text xlimits ylimits mode LEFT 1.00 0.00,0.50 0.00,1.00 edges LEFTMID 0.50 0.00,0.50 0.30,0.80 axes current viewport is NONE
This command shows the pre-defined viewport LEFT, and our user-defined viewport named LEFTMID. Under Column 1, text, is the setting for scaling the size of text. The xlimits and ylimits columns list the edges of the viewport. Mode takes the value edges for the default setting where the viewport limits include space for margins around the plot axes, or axes if the viewport was defined with the /axes qualifier, indicating that the limits define the location of the plot axes.
Lists open window numbers and indicates which is the active one.
yes? SHOW WINDOWS
In PyFerret, the SHOW WINDOW command displays additional values that are options for the SET WINDOW command in PyFerret. For example:
yes? show window OPEN ACTIVE ANTIALIAS QUALITY DISPLAY THICKEN TEXTPROM 1 * YES HIGH YES 1.00 1.00
