[netCDF #ESW-478054]: netcdf c++ on windows

Sorry, we don't have a current port of netCDF C++ to Windows visual studio, 
it's been reported to work fine if built under cygwin (with g++, though I'm not 
if it also works with the vs C++ compiler).

For the current state of the Visual Studio port, see this FAQ entry:


The latest netCDF snapshot release of the C library has some changes to make it 
easier to build under Windows, and both of the C++ libraries (for netCDF-3 and
netCDF-4) are just layered on top of the C library.  If you're adventurous, you 
can get the latest snapshot from


and the C++ releases that assume the C library is installed already are
available from


Things will be a bit chaotic with the Windows port until we hire a replacement
for the developer who worked on that platform ...
