VersionDescription
000370 The ECMWF GRIBEX version 000370 library.

Level of support

Tier 3 NSC will not be able to help you much with this program, either because we lack the in-house experience, or because it is a test installation. In general, these types of installations are untested, and will not be updated unless you send a request to NSC.

Please see the page describing our software support categories for more information.
You can also contact support@nsc.liu.se for further information.

The ECMWF GRIBEX software has been developed for encoding and decoding WMO FM–92 GRIB code messages and some ancillary subroutines for controlling printing and debugging. GRIBEX has been replaced by GRIB API. GRIBEX is not available for download and is not maintained nor supported any longer.

Gribex is built by NSC following the ECMWF documentation. Please contact support@nsc.liu.se if you have problems with our gribex installation.

Upgrade policy

Note, gribex has been replaced by grib_api and is no longer being developed or supported by ECMWF. The gribex library is used in the EC-Earth3 model.

How to use

Load the gribex module, e.g

module load gribex/000370-i1214

The environment variable GRIBEX_DIR is set to the installation directory, so if you want to link against gribex library you can do e.g
