Ada, Adapp : Parallel NetCDF


Parallel NetCDF is a library of parallel I/O. The files treated are in NetCDF format. This file format is self-describing and portable between different architectures.

Parallel NetCDF is a development which is entirely independent of the netCDF library, also available at IDRIS.


The Parallel NetCDF library (versions 1.1.1, 1.3.1, 1.4.0 and 1.5.0) is installed on Ada.

Access is obtained with the ''module'' command:

module load pnetcdf

To use the 1.5.0 version instead of 1.4.0 (default version), use the following command:

module load pnetcdf/1.5.0

Once the module is loaded, you can proceed directly to the compiling and linking of your application without having to specify the path to the library.
