[netCDF #QWQ-242371]: BUG(?): data type SHORT not a 2-byte integer type ?

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for letting us know that you found the answer in our archive of
past support responses.  I had actually forgotten the answer and was
ready to tackle it, but your email saved us time of rediscovering this
format idiosyncrasy :-).

> providing valuable information - and the answer / explanation to my question:
> ..the behaviour described below (of getting different files when using type 
> SHORT)  is related to the NetCDF library iteself and it is intentionally - 
> but it can be solved by the work-around of changing in the CDF text file 
> (with 2-variables)  the 'time'-dimension from UNLIMITED to the actual number 
> of time steps (i.e. actual number of records in NetCDF terminology (?)) 
> before transforming to binary format via ncgen.
> I think the work-around will fix the source of my problem which came up when

> "FLOAT-to-SHORT"-compression (or more precise: data type conversion / 
> transformation) of NetCDF data files using floating point types FLOAT or
