[netCDFJava #PME-115746]: Variable length data sets in NetCDF

Hi Kent:

You cant use netcdf-3 to write variable length records.

> Description of problem:
> Hi,
> I am trying to use NetcdfFileWriteable to create a database to maintain a
> variable number of large records of data from a simulation.  A record may
> contain from a few hundred bytes of doubles to a few megabytes of doubles.
> Some records will be small and some large.  I do not know ahead of time
> the size of the records or how many there will be.  It seems that NetCDF
> is not suitable for this application because it requires that I know the
> size of the data I will write before I actually create the file.  When I
> tried to addDimension() after create() I got the error not in define mode.
> Is there some other technique that I have not yet discovered that would
> support my application using NetCDF?
> Thanks,
