[THREDDS #HTM-457588]: help on OpenDap data access using NCL



In any case, I have fixed the bug so that at least flattened variable
names work ok. The pull request is here:
https://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-c/pull/1319


> You should be aware that OPeNDAP (DAP2 protocol) was never
> intended to handle netcdf-4 files, only netcdf-3 files.
> There are some hacks in the thredds server (and in the netcdf-c
> library) to handle a subset of netcdf-4 files, but they are just
> that: hacks, and bad ones at that. The use of flattening to handle
> groups is one such example. It has not been used, but let me see if
> I can fix it to work. But be warned, trying to read a netcdf-4 file
> thru DAP2 ("/dodsC/") can cause many other errors.
> 
> The newer DAP4 protocol is designed to handle netcdf-4 files.
> Both thredds and the netcdf-c library have support for DAP4.
> It should be noted, however, that because DAP4 is not being used
> as much as DAP2, the code needs some shakedown.
> A couple of other notes.
> 1. you will need to run the 5.0 beta thredds server. The data.nodc.noaa.gov
> server appears to be thredds version 4.6
> 2. You will need to enable the dap4 protocol in the thredds catalog
> for those datasets of interest.
