"""
A package for handling multi-dimensional data and associated metadata.

.. note ::

    The Iris documentation has further usage information, including
    a :ref:`user guide <user_guide_index>` which should be the first port of
    call for new users.

The functions in this module provide the main way to load and/or save
your data.

The :func:`load` function provides a simple way to explore data from
the interactive Python prompt. It will convert the source data into
:class:`Cubes <iris.cube.Cube>`, and combine those cubes into
higher-dimensional cubes where possible.

The :func:`load_cube` and :func:`load_cubes` functions are similar to
:func:`load`, but they raise an exception if the number of cubes is not
what was expected. They are more useful in scripts, where they can
provide an early sanity check on incoming data.

The :func:`load_raw` function is provided for those occasions where the
automatic combination of cubes into higher-dimensional cubes is
undesirable. However, it is intended as a tool of last resort! If you
experience a problem with the automatic combination process then please
raise an issue with the Iris developers.

To persist a cube to the file-system, use the :func:`save` function.

All the load functions share very similar arguments:

    * uris:
        Either a single filename/URI expressed as a string, or an
        iterable of filenames/URIs.

        Filenames can contain `~` or `~user` abbreviations, and/or
        Unix shell-style wildcards (e.g. `*` and `?`). See the
        standard library function :func:`os.path.expanduser` and
        module :mod:`fnmatch` for more details.

    * constraints:
        Either a single constraint, or an iterable of constraints.
        Each constraint can be either a string, an instance of
        :class:`iris.Constraint`, or an instance of
        :class:`iris.AttributeConstraint`.  If the constraint is a string
        it will be used to match against cube.name().

        .. _constraint_egs:

        For example::

            # Load air temperature data.
            load_cube(uri, 'air_temperature')

            # Load data with a specific model level number.
            load_cube(uri, iris.Constraint(model_level_number=1))

            # Load data with a specific STASH code.
            load_cube(uri, iris.AttributeConstraint(STASH='m01s00i004'))

    * callback:
        A function to add metadata from the originating field and/or URI which
        obeys the following rules:

        1. Function signature must be: ``(cube, field, filename)``.
        2. Modifies the given cube inplace, unless a new cube is
           returned by the function.
        3. If the cube is to be rejected the callback must raise
           an :class:`iris.exceptions.IgnoreCubeException`.

        For example::

            def callback(cube, field, filename):
                # Extract ID from filenames given as: <prefix>__<exp_id>
                experiment_id = filename.split('__')[1]
                experiment_coord = iris.coords.AuxCoord(
                    experiment_id, long_name='experiment_id')
                cube.add_aux_coord(experiment_coord)
