If left unspecified, % the function will return ALL the parameters in that content category. % gridname - A text expression for the data grid within the granule file that is to be % examined. This function will only process one data grid at a time. In the % (typical) case that there is only ONE data grid in the granule file, this % argument can be left unspecified. % % RETURN VALUES: % % buffer - IDL data structure with fields of parameter name/parameter value. % Type "help,buffer,/struct" at the IDL command line for details. % The buffer parameter will be empty ([]) if the function fails. % prog_name = 'read_L3_grid_file';
