The section I was thinking of is in the NetCDF Users Guide, rather than the netCDF C Interface Guide (where I was looking): http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/docs/netcdf.html#Type-Conversion It mentions that text to numeric conversions are not supported, but I think the C Interface Guide needs to also discuss how the names of functions relate to C types and netCDF types. No such discussion is needed for the Fortran-90 functions, because they overload the read and write functions to replace all the various type-specific functions with just two: nf90_put_var() and nf90_get_var(), with optional arguments for stride, origin, shape, etc. --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: DIG-256328 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
