[netCDF #KPI-546451]: help getting started

Hi Etay,

> I'm a new student working with some models that require the netcdf
> libraries. I just downloaded the latest netcdf-4.1.3 binary to my Mac
> running OS X 10.6.4. Unfortunately, I'm not really sure where to go
> from here because the contents of the directory created by untarring the
> download were not quite what I was led to expect. The Installation and
> Porting guide suggests that there should be lib, man, bin, and include
> directories somewhere, but the only one I can find is include. There is a
> man4 directory, a bunch of directories with lib in the name, and nothing
> that resembles a bin directory. Have I missed something very important?
> I know this is about as basic as a question can get, but I appreciate
> any help getting started. Please let me know if there is any other info
> I need to provide in order for you to know how to help.

You downloaded the netCDF source, from which you can build and install the 
libraries and executables by following the instructions here:


If you just want to install binaries, you can use a package installer such as
yum (for Linux) or fink (for MacOSX), but you may not get the latest version,
