netcdf-hdf mailing list is no longer active. The list archives are made available for historical reasons.
Hi, Russ, Long time no see. This is an abstain, but I would like a daily digest, like ncdigest, if this pace of correspondence keeps up. Generally, as I am not actively developing any NetCDF or HDF s/w, I lurk instead.

(Personally, I find that I want to reply > to the list 99% of the time and fiddling with the 'To' information > each time is getting annoying... :-) It's possible with a small configuration change, but then the list would be set with that default for everyone. Some people prefer the other default and configure their mail client if they want to make it easy to reply to the list rather than just the poster. Please send email to me (not the list) with your vote, if you care, and I'll tally the results by Friday noon (MST). You can just include one of the following two lines in your email: *** Reply to list as default *** Reply to poster as default --Russ >From owner-netcdf-hdf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 18 2003 Dec -0700 09:32:58 Message-ID: <uad5q2iit.fsf@xxxxxxxxxx> Date: 18 Dec 2003 09:32:58 -0700 From: ed@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx To: netcdf-hdf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: the new netcdf-4 string type...

Here's all I have for requirements: * A string data type is supported. * Either ASCII or Unicode may be used in strings. Other than the use of unicode, I wonder how this differs from NC_CHAR? I believe the idea is to allow the user to store an n-dimensional array of variable length strings as a netcdf-4 variable. Is this what is desired? Perhaps instead of adding a new type, we should add a new function call which allows you to store string arrays (as NC_CHAR) without any defined dimensions, and taking advantage of the variable length strings of HDF5? Do we need a new type for string attributes (again, setting aside Unicode for a moment)? You can just use nc_put_att_text to write a string attribute from a C char *, so what would a string attribute do that NC_CHAR doesn't for an attribute? In terms of Unicode, this is not yet supported by HDF5, so I would suggest that we refrain from adding this feature until they add it. For that we would probably want to add a new type NC_UNICODE.
