I try to open, read and extract a NetCDF in matlab for over a week without any success. I found a number of errors which are equivalent to my work. I also try to read errors and solve them by clicking on the underlined errors and reading solutions on the editor. “Errors and their solution on the editor is difficult to understand. How can I work with matlab easily?

  • You need to explain your problem more clearly. If you have a problem, then give an example. Otherwise, all you can get are broad answers like mine here, since we cannot read your mind. Thus, why have you not used the tools in MATLAB to extract information from netcdf files?
    >> lookfor netcdf
    nccreate - Create variable in NetCDF file.
    ncdisp - Display contents of a NetCDF source in command window.
    ncinfo - Return information about a NetCDF source.
    ncread - Read variable data from a NetCDF source.
    ncreadatt - Read attribute value from a NetCDF source.
    ncwrite - Write data to NetCDF file.
    ncwriteatt - Write attribute to NetCDF file.
    ncwriteschema - Add NetCDF schema definitions to NetCDF file.
    If you have not tried using those tools, then why not? If you have tried, but will not tell us what went wrong, then just telling us that you have tried without success is a waste of your time and ours, since we cannot help you. Read the help for those tools. I might start with:
    doc ncread
    which has examples of use in there.
    If your question is how to do all of this without using the tools available, then this is all just silly. If you want to rewrite existing tools written by professionals, then learn enough about the topic to become one yourself.
    If your MATLAB release is so old that it does not have netcdf tools in it, then it is time to upgrade your MATLAB release, instead of wasting weeks of your time to solve already solved problems.
    You ask "How can I work with matlab easily?" The answer is you do it by reading the documentation for the tools you need to use. If you cannot find those tools, then do as I did: use lookfor. If you never knew that lookfor existed, then now you do. It is a powerful tool.
