Is that the correct library file? That's the correct library file but "-lnetcdf" might not be enough: the "-L..." option is usually also used in order to specify the containing directory. For example: LD_NETCDF="-L/cygdrive/c/strawberry/lib -lnetcdf" ./configure ... >configure.log 2>&1 The directory containing the netCDF header-file can be similarly specified: CPP_NETCDF=-I/cygdrive/c/strawberry/include LD_NETCDF="-L/cygdrive/c/strawberry/lib -lnetcdf" ./configure ... >configure.log 2>&1 The above 2 commands assume that you use a standard shell. If you one with csh(1) syntax, then the CPP_NETCDF and LD_NETCDF variables have to be set as environment variables (or in the CUSTOMIZE file). Be sure to execute the command "make distclean" before re-executing the configure(1) script. > Thanks again > > Clay Regards, Steve Emmerson Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: XOS-274016 Department: Support netCDF Perl Priority: Normal Status: Closed
