Subject: arrays of fixed-length strings

In netcdf-4.0, I don't see how to create variables which are arrays of
strings with length > 1.  I see how to create arrays of
single-characters, and arrays of variable-length strings, but not
strings of a specified length.

Am I missing something, or is this not supported by HDF5?

Yes, fixed-length arrays are supported in HDF5. You need to use something like the following HDF5 calls:

        tid = H5Tcopy(H5T_C_S1);
        H5Tset_size(tid, <string length>);
