Dear all,

i am trying to read *one* *specific* elevation [Lat x Lon x Time] timestep 
in a large NetCDF file using Julia NetCDF. I've tried the syntax (along 
with many variations to the theme):

timestep = 17
el=ncread(fname,"elevation",start=[1,1,timestep], count=[-1, -1, 1])

which returns the following error:

ERROR: LoadError: MethodError: `__ncread#17__` has no method matching 
__ncread#17__(::Array{Any,1}, ::Array{Int64,1}, ::ASCIIString, 

Can anyone help me get this right? What is wrong with my syntax? It's very 
time consuming to read the entire variable just to subset it to one 
timestep in the next line.

I appreciate all the work done on the NetCDF.jl package very much, but i 
feel that documentation (and users) would benefit from some concrete 
examples like the one i am mentioning.

Thanks so much!
