I think you should use -1 in the parameter statements for nf90_fill_ubyte, nf90_fill_ushort, and nf90_fill_uint. That's the same value that actually gets assigned using the typeless hexadecimal constants Z'FF', Z'FFFF', and Z'FFFFFFFF', which are technically outside the range of signed ints (hence the error message). So -1 gives you the same value without the errors and it's portable. --Russ ============================================================================== To unsubscribe netcdf-hdf, visit: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/mailing-list-delete-form.html ==============================================================================
