[mapserver-users] WMS for netcdf [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

I tried the variable substitution and it didn't work as I don't think PROCESSING is one of the parameters supported.
I also looked at the link about WCS, but I only want WMS. I'm not sure how a tile index would work as I'm only using one file with multiple time bands.
Plus, I looked at "Changing map file parameters via a form or a URL", but wasn't sure of the syntax to change the band number.

I have a NetCDF file with contains over 150 timesteps. I can create a WMS for each timestep using PROCESSING "BANDS=1", which means I have to define over 150 layers. I was hoping to only define the layer once and pass a variable for the time or the band number.
Does anyone have any ideas?
I wrote the following reply, and then realized that you may not be asking for this. Have you seen http://mapserver.org/ogc/wcs_format.html?
For completeness, I will leave my original response as well.
Neither have I done this before nor do I know the answer, but I *am* interested in how you solve it since I have interest in munging a bunch of netCDF data. I am wondering, couldn't you use the standard variable substitution as Mapserver supports that for stuff like layer names and class names? Something like (do check the exact syntax)
and then past in the band via the query string ?band=1
