[netCDF #FSI-652508]: netcdf-4 with hdf5 and zlib not compiling

Hi Jonathan,
> I have compiled netcdf4 with hdf5-1.8.2 and zlib-1.2.3.
> When linking the math library, the file that I have attached 
> (qfed2.emiss.bc.005.20060505.nc) was unable to open with ncdump.

I just tried an ncdump compiled with the current netCDF-4 version 4.1.1 on your 
file, and it 
seems to work fine, with no errors reported.  However, I got the same error 
message you did,
"NetCDF: Unknown file format", when using ncdump from netCDF versions 4.0 or 
4.0.1.  This is
puzzling, because the only bug I'm aware of with netCDF-4 compatibility is with 
files written
with a variable with more than 8 attributes on a big-endian platform using a 
version of HDF5
prior to 1.8.4-patch1.  Your file has no such variable, so it should be 

However, you can certainly work around the problem by installing the current 
release, using
HDF5 1.8.4-patch1 or later for the underlying HDF library.

In the meantime, we'll investigate further to see why that netCDF file is not 
readable with
earlier versions of netCDF.  Thanks for reporting this problem.
