The pupose of this NCDF_Dimension object is to store information about
a netCDF dimension. The object is principally used as a utility routine
for the NCDF_FILE object. Given the dimension name, the object will
acquire additional information about the dimension from the netCDF file
containing the dimension.

IDL> dimObj = Obj_New('NCDF_DIMENSION', dimName, parent)
dimName: The case sensitive name of a netCDF dimension that is stored in the
netCDF file. (Input and required.)
parent: The object reference (NCDF_FILE object) of the netCDF file. In other words, the
object reference of the file that contains this attribute. (Input and required.)
The following methods are available. Each is documented in front of the method.
dimName = dimObject -> GetID()
dimName = dimObject -> GetName()
dimName = dimObject -> GetSize()
propertyValue = dimObject -> GetProperty(dimProperty)
dimValue = dimObject -> GetValue()
dimName = dimObject -> GetUnlimited()
dimObject -> ParseAttribute
