Dear pyngl-talk:

I am having problems opening CloudSat HDF-EOS files with PyNGL. I have
downloaded four sample files (2B-CLDCLASS, 2B-GEOPROF, 2B-GEOPROF-LIDAR,
and 1B-CPR), but my simple python script seg faults when opening the file:

#!/usr/bin/env python
Simple script to open CloudSat 1B-CPR data.


import os,sys,math
import numpy
import Nio
import Ngl

# Open CloudSat file
file = Nio.open_file("2007269075138_07514_CS_1B-CPR_GRANULE_P_R04_E02.hdf.hdfeos","r")

When I use the .hdf suffix, the file opens but I cannot extract
the geolocation data.

I am using Python 2.5.1, numpy 1.0.3, and Ngl/Nio 1.2.0 built with gcc 3 for
an i686 system.

Any ideas?
