What is odd about the vlen valgrinds is that they do not appear to show an illegal overwrite of memory. Turning to the string code, it is clear that the string code is not calling nc_inq_type with the correct parameters. I can use gdb and see what is passed in to the underlying nc_inq_type. The incoming arguments look ok to me. So, somehow the arguments at the fortran level are not correct. I am guessing that properly defining and passing a string as a char* from fortran to c is more complicated that I know how to do. I have attached a simplified version that does not use nf_inq_type and uses nf_put_att instead of nf_put_var. It also assumes that sizeof(char*) is 4. See comments in the code. Until we can figure out the proper way to pass a string, I am stuck. =Dennis Heimbigner Unidata Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: YZD-296984 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Open =================== NOTE: All email exchanges with Unidata User Support are recorded in the Unidata inquiry tracking system and then made publicly available through the web.
