[netCDF #OYN-551561]: FILL_DOUBLE in classic format spec


> I notice the value of FILL_DOUBLE defined in the classic format spec contains 
> only 6 bytes.
> FILL_DOUBLE  = \x47 \x9E \x00 \x00 \x00 \x00 //(double)9.9692099683868690e+36
> Shouldn't it be? (2 tail bytes are missing)
> FILL_DOUBLE  = \x47 \x9E \x00 \x00 \x00 \x00 \x00 \x00 
> //(double)9.9692099683868690e+36
> I can see it is just the same copy from the formal document from NASA "NetCDF 
> Classic and 64-bit Offset File Formats". Maybe contact them to fix?

Yes, you're right, thanks for reporting this!

We'll fix it for the upcoming release.  I'll send a note to NASA as well.
