[UDUNITS #UCS-582043]: compile problems on SUN SOLARIS 8 SPARC


> I'd like to use UDUNITS, which is necessary to use readnetcdf.f

Just FYI, the string "-L /usr/local/netcdf-3.5.0/lib/libnetcdf.a 
-L lib/libudunits.a -ludunit" should, instead, probably be
"-L /usr/local/netcdf-3.5.0/lib -l netcdf -L lib -l udunits".
The "-L" option takes a directory as its argument
and the "-l" option takes the library name as its argument.

The "INTEGER attribute" error-message is one of the worst I've seen.
I can only guess that it's complaining that UTMAKE was previously
declared as being of type integer.

Does the file "readnetcdf.F" declare UTMAKE?  Does it also include the
UDUNITS Fortran header-file "udunits.inc"?   If so, then one of them
must be deleted.

UDUNITS uses the macro UD_POINTER as the type necessary to hold a
pointer to a units structure.  Could it be that "readnetcdf.F" defines
its own type (unitptr) and that this type must be the same as the
UD_POINTER type defined in the include-file "udunits.inc"?  What happens
if both are defined as INTEGER*8?

I don't know the file "readnetcdf.F".  You might try contacting
the people who created it.
