Re: parallel I/O and netCDF-4

Ed,

You might want to look at our parallel tutorial. It gives an introduction
to how HDF5 does parallel IO along with an example.

  http://hdf.ncsa.uiuc.edu/HDF5/PHDF5/

As far a prerequisites, parallel netcdf 4 will need to have parallel hdf5,
i.e., HDF5 compile with the parallel stuff enabled.
