    Any chance of getting an updated Cygwin build?

    we need volunteers to contribute cygwin builds. anyone?

    Thanks to whomever contributed the recent cygwin 4.3.5 build. Is the ncap executable in this package ncap2?

    it's both an indirect object and the subject of a noun phrase, so i share your confusion.

    the ncap executable is not ncap2, it is an earlier form of ncap2 that is easier to build.
    it can perform a limited number of straightforward functions but nothing fancy.
    we're (thanks mark!) working on getting ncap2 in the next cygwing build.

    I have not made much progress on ncap2. I am stuck on the ANTLR-C++ interface. Different ANTLR versions appear to have wildly different build systems. The last one that uses the old familiar configure mechanism is 2.7.7 (7 years old) and on Cygwin there is a compilation failure. Too much trouble for a mere scientist like me.

    @brendandetracey, hadfield
    We will provide NCO 4.3.6 cygwing binaries

    Mark, what is the antlr error? It rings a bell. I think it may just require a one-line change in the antlr source tree…

    Mark, I found that error too while building ANTLR 2.7.7;

    This version here (bottom of page)

    http://nco.sourceforge.net/nco_qt_msvc.shtml

    has that fixed

    The ANTLR file CharScanner.hpp needs to have a line like the following

    #include <strings.h>

    near the top so it can find the prototype for strcasecmp().

    If Pedro is going to build a NCO 4.3.6 Cygwin binary with a working ncap2 then I am more than happy to abandon my own feeble efforts.

    Mark, until the NCO 4.3.6 Cygwin binaries are ready, you might want to give a try to the native NCO 4.3.6 Windows build

    http://nco.sourceforge.net/#windows

    Out of curiosity: Why the need for  Cygwin binaries? Because you use  Cygwin anyway?

    Pedro

    Because I use Cygwin anyway. Because in the Cygwin environment it is usually best to use Cygwin-aware applications-ones that understand Unix paths, for example. Because my Cygwin netCDF library can handle things like OpenDAP, and NCO can make use of this seamlessly. Because I'm a bit stubborn when I try to build something under Cygwin and run into problems.

    But I'm definitely not a purist and I'm not stubborn enough to bash my head against a brick wall endlessly. A Windows-native ncap2 executable would be handy. :-)

    I added that missing file to the NCO distribution

    please download again

    http://nco.sourceforge.net/#windows

    By the way, all operators are built in this native distribution, including ncap2

    However there are 2 features that are missing from the native build, but are available in the Cygwin build

    1) UDunits
    2) Regular expressions

    This is because there are not Windows native ports of these packages. We will support them in a future release, hopefully (meaning we will try to build a Windows native port ourselves).

    So, if these are important features to you, you may want to stick with the Cygwin build for a while.

    Other feature also not present in the native build is HDF4 linkage (allowing to open HDF4 files via NCO), I will add that soon

    And now it's asking for hdf5_hl_D.dll -:)

    I uploaded a new NCO 4.3.6 Windows package with that DLL file included.

    I downloaded the latest cygwin build (nco-4.3.7.win32.cygwin.tar.gz (5.0M): Executables Cygwin-compatible (last updated Thursday, 17-Oct-2013 21:14:04 UTC).) and installed by untarring into /usr/local/.

    For some reason ncap2 does nothing. Can anyone enlighten me on this?

    (Thanks for the updated cygwin build. I was in the process of attempting my own, but after waiting fruitlessly three months for our IT dept to allow me to run the cygwin setup to install GSL, I gave up.)

    What was the command you used for ncap2?

    Can you try this?

    ncks -C -v time ~/nco/data/in.nc
    ncap2 -s 'time=time+1' ~/nco/data/in.nc out.nc
    ncks -C -v time out.nc

    Should not really matter what the command is.

    When I try:
    ncap2
    nothing happens or prints to the screen, just back to the command prompt.
    When I try:
    ncap2 -r
    again nothing, just the next command prompt.

    Should it matter where I unpacked the tarball? I noticed there are some libraries as well as executables. Would the location of these matter? I was assuming the executables are statically linked.

    What happens if you run ncap2, or any other operator, in the place where you unpacked to?

    cd /usr/local
    cd bin

    ncap2 -r
    ncks -r

    All other nco executables work. This is, if I enter the command with no options, the help text is displayed. It is only ncap2 that does not work.

    I tried ncap2 from /usr/local/bin but it did not work.

    FYI:( 5941077 Oct 17 18:10 ncap2.exe )

    One other hint.
    ldd /usr/local/bin/ncap2
    hangs. Maybe this means a library is not properly linked? This is not my area of expertise.

    Try this command on your system and see what it reports.
