ncl_mpname: Given the area identifier of one of the areas defined by whatever
MPNAME - Given the area identifier of one of the areas defined by whatever database was last read by one of the EZMAPB routines MPLNAM, MPLNDM, MPLNDR, and MPLNRI, this function returns the name of the area.
C-BINDING SYNOPSIS#include <ncarg/ncargC.h>
- is an input expression of type INTEGER, specifying the area identifier of a particular area of interest.
C-BINDING DESCRIPTIONThe C-binding argument description is the same as the FORTRAN argument description.
USAGEGiven the declaration "CHARACTER*64 MPNAME,NAME", the executable statement "NAME=MPNAME(IAIN)" will retrieve in NAME the name of the area with area identifier IAIN. For example, if IMAD is the area identifier of the little island in Lake Superior called "Lake Madeline", then MPNAME(IMAD) = 'Madeline Island (Lake Superior)'.
To get the name of the area, at a specified level, that contains an area with a specified area identifier, use MPNAME in combination with MPIOAR. For example, MPNAME(MPIOAR(IMAD,3)) = 'Conterminous US', and MPNAME(MPIOAR(IMAD,2)) = 'North America'.
EXAMPLESUse the ncargex command to see the following relevant examples: mpex11, mpex12.
ACCESSTo use MPNAME or c_mpname, load the NCAR Graphics libraries ncarg, ncarg_gks, and ncarg_c, preferably in that order.
