/**
\ingroup variables
Find the ID of a variable, from the name.
The function nc_inq_varid returns the ID of a netCDF variable, given
its name.
\param ncid NetCDF or group ID, from a previous call to nc_open(),
nc_create(), nc_def_grp(), or associated inquiry functions such as
nc_inq_ncid().
\param name Name of the variable.
\param varidp Pointer to location for returned variable ID. \ref
ignored_if_null.
\returns ::NC_NOERR No error.
\returns ::NC_EBADID Bad ncid.
\section Example
Here is an example using nc_inq_varid to find out the ID of a variable
named rh in an existing netCDF dataset named foo.nc:
\code
#include <netcdf.h>
...
int status, ncid, rh_id;
...
status = nc_open("foo.nc", NC_NOWRITE, &ncid);
if (status != NC_NOERR) handle_error(status);
...
status = nc_inq_varid (ncid, "rh", &rh_id);
if (status != NC_NOERR) handle_error(status);
\endcode
*/

/**

ncid
NetCDF group ID, from a previous call to nc_open, nc_create, nc_def_grp, etc.
nunlimdimsp
A pointer to an int which will get the number of visible unlimited dimensions. Ignored if NULL.
unlimdimidsp
A pointer to an already allocated array of int which will get the ids of all visible unlimited dimensions. Ignored if NULL. To allocate the correct length for this array, call nc_inq_unlimdims with a NULL for this parameter and use the nunlimdimsp parameter to get the number of visible unlimited dimensions.
Errors
NC_NOERR
No error.
NC_EBADID
Bad group id.
NC_ENOTNC4
Attempting a netCDF-4 operation on a netCDF-3 file. NetCDF-4 operations can only be performed on files defined with a create mode which includes flag HDF5. (see nc_open).
NC_ESTRICTNC3
This file was created with the strict netcdf-3 flag, therefore netcdf-4 operations are not allowed. (see nc_open).
NC_EHDFERR
An error was reported by the HDF5 layer.
