Loading STASHmaster files into convsh

Reported by: kipling Owned by: jeff

I'm using convsh (v1.91) to convert UM fieldsfiles to netCDF (via the um2nc script from, but I can't get it to load my STASHmaster files, and thus I get long_name attributes like:

field1870_20:title = "Stash code = 34270"

for many diagnostics (particularly the UKCA ones) — even though the STASH names (e.g. "IMP SCAVENGING BLK CARB AITKEN (INS)" for the above) are correctly displayed in xconv once I've added my STASHmaster files via the setup dialog.

Is there a way to similarly load an updated set of STASHmaster files into convsh?

Yes you just need to use this command in your convsh script

getstashmaster file1 file2 …

Thanks — that makes my output a lot more readable!

However I find that this only imports the first file listed (strace confirms that only file1 is ever opened). If I issue the command multiple times:

getstashmaster file1
getstashmaster file2

then each file gets opened, but only records from the last file loaded are used.

Yes sorry about that, the input needs to be a tcl list so try

getstashmaster "file1 file2"

or if that doesn't work

getstashmaster [list file1 file2]
