This function deletes
variables from NCL.
- Any variable of any type or dimensionality.
This function is used to delete variables, attributes,
and coordinate variables from NCL. delete does not work for
deleting file variables, file attributes, or file coordinate variables.
When a variable is passed in, all of the memory
associated with the variable's value and its reference in the symbol table
are removed. If an attribute or coordinate variable is passed in, it is deleted from the variable it belongs to.
Note that if the variable being deleted is an HLU object and the
variable contains the only reference to that HLU object, the HLU object
will be destroyed. See NhlDestroy for the ability to destroy HLU objects
without deleting the variable it points to.
