Fabio, > Could you tell me where I can get the C version of the library: netcfd.lib > (debug and release version). It sounds like you want a Windows version of the netCDF C library. You can build the C netCDF library for Windows from source using the Cygwin development environment, as described here: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/docs/faq.html#windows_netcdf4 We have plans to make a Visual Studio build later this year, as announced in this posting to the address@hidden mailing list yesterday: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/mailing_lists/archives/netcdfgroup/2010/msg00257.html There are some open source and commercial software packages for manipulating and displaying netCDF data on Windows platforms, and some of these may come with a prebuilt netCDF library you could use instead of building it. You can find descriptions and links to more information about these packages by looking for "Windows" in the following listing of "Software for Manipulating or Displaying NetCDF Data": http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/software.html --Russ > -----Original Message----- > From: Unidata netCDF Support [mailto:address@hidden > Sent: Monday, July 12, 2010 7:28 PM > To: address@hidden > Cc: address@hidden; address@hidden; > address@hidden > Subject: [netCDF #ZCE-849683]: clarification on large file support > > Fabio, > > A little more clarification is needed to my last reply.

The netCDF > classic format limits all but the last variable to 2GB in size.
