Hi Grant, Sorry to have taken so long to respond to your question ... > Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6.8 > Description of problem: > > I'm new to netcdf and am trying to compile a simple F90 program that > has the 'use netcdf' statement at the top.

The netcdf.mod file (which some compilers name "netcdf.MOD") is typically stored in an "include/" directory, such as /sw/include/ rather than /sw/lib/. It's the Fortran-90 module file that defines the library interfaces for Fortran-90 programs that make use of the netCDF library. > Here's my compile line: > > gfortran t.f90 -L/sw/lib -lnetcdf -L/sw/lib/netcdf-gfortran -lnetcdff > > Here's what's installed (marked with 'i'): > > fink list netcdf > Information about 11902 packages read in 2 seconds. > nco-netcdf 4.0.9-1 OBSOLETE, use 'nco' > instead > i netcdf 3.6.3-6 Interface & lib > for array-based data access > (i) netcdf-bin 4.2.1-1 Array-based data > access, user programs > netcdf-c7 4.2.1-1 Array-based data > access, C headers and docs > (i) netcdf-c7-shlibs 4.2.1-1 Array-based data > access, C library > netcdf-cxx4 4.2-2 Array-based data > access, C++ headers and docs > netcdf-cxx4-shlibs 4.2-2 Array-based data > access, C++ library > netcdf-fortran5 4.2-4 Array-based data > access, Fortran headers/doc > netcdf-fortran5-shlibs 4.2-4 Array-based data > access, Fortran library > netcdf-g95 3.6.3-9 Interface & lib for > array-based data access > netcdf-g95-shlibs 3.6.3-9 Interface & lib for > array-based data access > i netcdf-gfortran 3.6.3-9 Interface & lib > for array-based data access > i netcdf-gfortran-shlibs 3.6.3-9 Interface & lib > for array-based data access > netcdf-perl-pm588 1.2.3-7 Perl extension for > netCDF datasets access > i netcdf-shlibs 3.6.3-6 Interface & lib > for array-based data access > netcdf7 4.1.3-9 Array-based data > access, headers and docs > netcdf7-bin 4.1.3-9 Array-based data > access, interface > netcdf7-gfortran 4.1.3-11 Interface & lib for > array-based data access > netcdf7-gfortran-shlibs 4.1.3-11 Interface & lib for > array-based data access > netcdf7-shlibs 4.1.3-9 Array-based data > access, headers and docs > > > Please let me know if I overlooked something I should have installed. This email and the followup from the fink users mailing list may be helpful: http://www.mail-archive.com/address@hidden/msg35667.html http://www.mail-archive.com/address@hidden/msg35668.html Also, with a MacOS-X system you can use the "Searchlight" tool in the upper right on the menubar to find files like "netcdf.mod". When a list of such files appears, just hold down the option-command key combination while your cursor is over the name, and the path to the file will appear at the bottom of the information window about the file, to the left of the list. --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: JSU-487825 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
