Following on from this thread on netCDF creation it fell out that it would be great to be able to get the dimension information of a dataset in HDF5 (netCDF-4) in the same way as the NC_Inquire.
Getting dimensional/dependency information isn't currently possible to do reliably. Some operation that interrogates the "DIMENSION_LIST" attribute would get what I want. Note it is possible to use HDF5Dump to try and get the dimension info but it isn't reliable and certainly isn't quick.
I would like this to be able to treat netCDF-4 files in the same way as netCDF-3.
