[netCDF #HJN-289811]: missing nc_def_var_deflate function

Hi Frank,

It's in all versions of netCDF-4, so I suspect you are inadvertently linking 
with a version-3 
netCDF library.  Check whether a shared library for netCDF-3 is installed or in 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH.  Also make sure the netcdf.h include file you're using 
includes these lines:

  /* Set compression settings for a variable. Lower is faster, higher is
    * better. Must be called after nc_def_var and before nc_enddef. */
  nc_def_var_deflate(int ncid, int varid, int shuffle, int deflate, 
                   int deflate_level);

If not, you may have a library installed from the netCDF-4 sources but built 
with the 
--disable-netcdf-4 configure flag or without an HDF5 library required for
