Yes, you should be able to build a netcdf library that supports both netcdf-enhanced(hdf5) and hdf4(read-only). By default, the hdf5 support is enabled, so you should just be able to add the --enable-hdf4 option to ./configure to get what you want. Dont forget to add the path to the hdf4 library to LDFLAGS before building. As for szip, it is not normally enabled by either hdf4 or hdf5, so you will have to rebuild those libraries with szip support (if you did not already do this). Then when you build the netcdf library, if it detects that hdf5 was built with szip support, it will build the netcdf library with szip support. Not sure why nc-config is not showing szip; probably an error in our configuration process. You might look at the file "libnetcdf.settings" that should exist in the netcdf build directory and see if it mentions szip. > > I have codes that need netcdf with hdf4 support and also newer codes that > require netcdf with hdf5 support.
