Hi. I just moved from running NCL vs 5.0.0 to vs5.1.1 and am having an issue with code which previously ran to completion daily. I can't see anything of relevance in the archives or on the NCL website... so any insight would be appreciated.


The file is a z500 GFS file, downloaded from NCEP. With vs 4.3.0 it uploaded & I extracted the z500 variable, namely HGT_P0_L100_GLL0(13,:,:). But now I can't even open the file.

ncl 0> file1 = addfile("fh.0000_tl.press_gr.1p0deg.grib2","r")

fatal:NclGRIB2: Invalid Product Definition Template.

fatal:Could not open (fh.0000_tl.press_gr.1p0deg)



Another piece of code which reads in ECMWF grib data continues to run to completion with vs5.1.1, suggesting that I have NCARG_ROOT etc set up properly.
