Hi everybody! I built netcdf4 on a Linux machine. It works fine with netcdf files. However hdf5 files are not read. I created a simple hdf5 file using hdf5 version 1.8 and tried to open it with nc_open(), I got error "-51". Any ideas why it is not working?

However, ncdump appears to be broken - every netcdf-4 file I try results in something like this: ncdump: test.nc: HDF error It seems to work fine with netcdf-3 files however. -Jeff -- Jeffrey S.
