14.2 > Libraries > netcdf (4.6.2)

NetCDF (network Common Data Form) is a set of interfaces for
array-oriented data access and a freely-distributed collection of data
access libraries for C, Fortran, C++, Java, and other languages. The
netCDF libraries support a machine-independent format for representing
scientific data. Together, the interfaces, libraries, and format support
the creation, access, and sharing of scientific data.

Optional HDF4 support

If you need support for reading HDF4 files, please build and install
the 'hdf' package from, and then pass the option
'HDF4=yes' to the netcdf SlackBuild, for example

HDF4=yes ./netcdf.SlackBuild

Optional CDF5 support

CDF5 support is not yet enabled by default. According to the release
notes [1], reading and writing CDF5 files on 32-bit platforms may
result in unexpected behavior when using extremely large variables. If
you need CDF5 support, please pass the option 'CDF5=yes' to the netcdf
SlackBuild, for example

CDF5=yes ./netcdf.SlackBuild


This requires: hdf5
