Characteristics

The NetCDF library is in a 64-bit addressing mode (default addressing mode on Ada).

Utilisation

Each version is installed in sequential and in parallel. The installed versions are accessible by the module command (we recommend that you read the documentation about ''module'' for additional information):

module load netcdf

Comments

For increased portability, we advise you to use the Fortran 90 interface. The NetCDF variables and functions all begin with nf90_. The functions allow passing 4 or 8-byte integers/reals in argument without changing the function call.

Documentation

Some on-line manuals (mans) corresponding to the version used (netcdf, ncdump and ncgen) are available.
