    5353The classic [http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/old_docs/really_old/guide_15.html CDF] file format (referred as CDF-1 and now obsolete) has been in use by NetCDF library through version 3.5.1. The classic format has been updated by NASA ESDS community standard and added a support for 64-bit offset file format (also referred as CDF-2). See [https://earthdata.nasa.gov/standards/netcdf-classic NetCDF Classic and 64-bit Offset File Formats].

    55 Starting from 3.6.0, the serial NetCDF library added support for the [http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/docs/netcdf/Classic-Format-Spec.html CDF-2] format.  With this format, even 32 bit platforms can create NetCDF files greater than 2GB in size. CDF-2 also allows more special characters in the name strings of defined dimension, variables, and attributes. The support was based largely on work from Greg Sjaardema.
