## This function writes the content of the NetCDF file @var{filename} except the actual values of the variables
## to the screen or to the file @var{output_filename} is this argument is provided. 
## The output used the same syntax that the octcdf toolbox. Therefore ncdump can be used to
## create a program that produces a NetCDF file with the same metadata than the NetCDF file
## @var{filename}.
