Hi, the netCDF / HDF project has been side-lined for a little while as we've been getting the newest HDF release out the door. The prototype passes all of the tests in the nctest suite, and the speed has improved sufficiently that it is now use-able. Before we release the prototype, I still have a couple of questions: 1) The netCDF manual doesn't explicitly forbid it, but from the code it looks impossible for a string valued attribute to have more than one value, i.e. in CDL: my_var:greetings = "hello", "goodbye"; Am I correct that this is not allowed? 2) We have been building off of netCDF 2.02 on your ftp server. Have there been any bug fixes / modifications since then that we should be aware of? We have still not implemented the filling of intermediate records which Glenn and I have talked a little about (mainly becuase it will violate a lot of the nice separation between "HDF" code and "netCDF" code :-( ). As soon as we put that in I think we'll go for a release. -Chris
