[netCDF #OWN-203547]: Problem with ncdump

Hi Matt,

I need more information about the problem.

What version of ncdump?  Look at the last line of output
from running ncdump --version.  If there is no version listed,
it's a very old and unsupported ncdump, so you may need to

What platform are you running ncdump on?  If it's an old version
of Windows, the port you have may have been created by a third
party before we started officially supporting building the
netCDF library and utilities from source on Windows.  We also
now support binary downloads of netCDF for Windows.

Can you run a different program than ncdump on the same file
from the same directory?  For example, do you get an error message
from running "cat <file name>" ?

Can you make the WRF output file available?
