Sorry about that. The old binary distributions that were in that directory are deprecated, unsupported, and have bugs that are fixed in more recent releases. Binary distributions for C-based netCDF libraries and utilities are no longer supported or maintained, except for certain platforms for which the software is difficult to build from source, such as Windows. For other platforms, please use the source distribution and follow these instructions: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/docs Instead of the netcdf-3.6.3 release, from June 2008, I recommend getting the latest release of the netCDF C library, version 4.3.0, from https://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-c/releases/tag/netcdf-4.3.0 I'm correcting the web documentation that indicated version 3.6.3 is still supported, so thanks for reporting that problem. --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: AZF-978815 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
