G'Day When I try setting the fill value for a variable of type DFNT_CHAR I seem to get only the first character of the string I am using. For example: dimSize = SD_UNLIMITED; dimSize = 17; sdsID = SDcreate(hdfFile, "Universal Time", DFNT_CHAR, 2, dimSize); fillval = (char *) malloc(sizeof("thisisafillvalue.")); fillval = "thisisafillvalue."; SDsetfillvalue(sdsID, (VOIDP) fillval)); When I run ncdump on the resulting file I get: Universal Time:_FillValue = "t" ; The actual values stored in the variable are fine. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug ? I have a short program which illustrates this effect. I can send a tar or sharfile of it on request. regards Ata <(|)>.
