Hi NetCDF-4 folks,
We're been thinking about using compound types in some of our new
datasets and have been puzzling over how to add attributes to compound
We expected to be able to specify attributes on a per *field* basis but
I get the definite impression this is not actually going to be
possible... attributes can be global, per group, per variable but it
seems thats it. Is this so?
Has anybody else been thinking about metadata for compound types? How
is metadata expected to be represented for individual fields? Surely
something as basic the ability to specify different units for each field
has been considered? Or have we got this whole compound types idea
Any thoughts most gratefully received.
