I have recently started using the ucar java class library and have
come across what I think might be a bug. I hope this list is the
correct one for questions of this type and has some users or
developers of this package who can help me.
I am using version 2.2 of the Java library and during testing had a
problem with the* ucar.nc2.Variable* class. In the following method:
Array read(int  origin, int  shape)
The following line calculates the last index in the required range. I
think it is doing this incorrectly when the statring point (first) is
anything other than the first element (0). The routine then crashes a
line or two later:
int last = (shape==null) ? getShape()[i] : first + shape[i] - 1;
I had to change the line to:
int last = (shape==null) ? getShape()[i] : shape[i] - 1;
This seems to make more sense since it appears that the 'last'
variable should contain the index of the last element in the array,
rather than a count of the number of elements to be read, which is
what the original line of code would suggest it is trying to do (even
then I think the code would need some attention). On the other hand
this seems like a piece of bread and butter code which is constantly
used, so I am worried that I am doing else wrong.
Has anyone come across this problem? Is there a NetCDF developer who
can help me?
The line above is correct. Its calculating the last requested index,
inclusive. Not sure why youre getting a crash, but the origin/shape
parameters are often a source of error.
the correct list for this is netcdf-java@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
