General usage information

NetCDF is a self-describing, machine-independent scientific data format. This package consists of libraries for C for reading and manipulating data in this format.

The following environmental variables have been defined:

  • \$NETCDF_ROOT has been set to the root of the netcdf installation
  • \$NETCDF_LIBDIR points to the directory containing the libraries
  • \$NETCDF_INCDIR points to the directory containing the header files

You will probably wish to use these by adding the following flags to your compilation command (e.g. to CFLAGS in your Makefile):

  • -I\$NETCDF_INCDIR
and the following flags to your link command (e.g. LDFLAGS in your Makefile):
  • -L\$NETCDF_LIBDIR -Wl,-rpath,\$NETCDF_LIBDIR

NOTE: For quite some time (since about version 4.2 of NetCDF) the Fortran and C++ interfaces to NetCDF have been split off into separate packages.

If you wish to use the Fortran interface, you must "module load" the appropriate netcdf-fortran module and add the appropriate flags for that library, as well as those for this C NetCDF library. Please see the web page for the netcdf-fortran module as well.

Similarly, if you wish to use the C++ interface, you must "module load" the appopriate netcdf-cxx module and add the appropriate flags for that library, as well as those for this C NetCDF library. Please see the web page for the netcdf-cxx module as well.
