As you know, we have NetCDF 4.4.0~rc2 in testing/unstable for some time
now. While that meets the 4.2.1 version requirements, but not the
NC_MAX_* values:

/**
Maximum for classic library.

In the classic netCDF model there are maximum values for the number of
dimensions in the file (\ref NC_MAX_DIMS), the number of global or per
variable attributes (\ref NC_MAX_ATTRS), the number of variables in
the file (\ref NC_MAX_VARS), and the length of a name (\ref
NC_MAX_NAME).

These maximums are enforced by the interface, to facilitate writing
applications and utilities.  However, nothing is statically allocated
to these sizes internally.

These maximums are not used for netCDF-4/HDF5 files unless they were
created with the ::NC_CLASSIC_MODEL flag.

As a rule, NC_MAX_VAR_DIMS <= NC_MAX_DIMS.
*/
/**@{*/
#define NC_MAX_DIMS     1024
#define NC_MAX_ATTRS    8192
#define NC_MAX_VARS     8192
#define NC_MAX_NAME     256
#define NC_MAX_VAR_DIMS 1024 /**< max per variable dimensions */
/**@}*/


I'm not comfortable changing these values, because I cannot oversee the
impact.

How common are the "large" models? Is it not a very specialised use case?

Kind Regards,

Bas
