David, I'm afraid I don't "do Windows" :-) but I'm fairly sure we can stumble our way through the build process together. As an alternative, I'll see if I can get a Windows developer here to build the package so that you can get it. I don't know which way will be faster. The first thing to do is to create most of the UDUNITS library. Go into the "src/lib" subdirectory and compile the files utparse.c, utscan.c, and udalloc.c with a C compiler. Then, create a library using the resulting object files (sorry, I don't know the commands to do this). Next, the file utlib.c must be compiled and added to the library. It must, however, be compiled in a way that allows Fortran routines to call the C functions that define the Fortran interface. This is done by defining a specific C macro that says what Fortran compiler will be used to compile the Fortran code. Can you find your Fortran compiler amongst the following C macros? NAGf90Fortran f2cFortran hpuxFortran apolloFortran sunFortran IBMR2Fortran CRAYFortran pgiFortran mipsFortran DECFortran vmsFortran CONVEXFortran PowerStationFortran AbsoftUNIXFortran AbsoftProFortran SXFortran The macro "pgiFortran" should also be used for the Intel Fortran compiler. Once you know the macro, compile the file utlib.c with that macro defined and then add the resulting object file to the library. Assuming you get this far, then you can install the library in an appropriate directory and you're done. Please tell me how this goes.

I have downloaded the prebuilt libraries for netCDF from unidata and seem to have successfully linked to them. There are no prebuilt UDUNITS libraries available, however, and I don't know how to build them. If anyone has previously been through these steps, I would very much appreciate you wisdom.
