Re: [netcdfgroup] What does nc_open returning 24 mean?

Too many open files?

posixio.c
[...]
        if(fd < 0)
        {
                status = errno;
[...]

On my linux at least...

/usr/include/asm-generic/errno-base.h
[...]
#define EMFILE          24      /* Too many open files */
[...]

Try to workaround with ulimit -n (at least with bash).
