I am trying to install UDUNITS-2 package for the graphical visual browser: ncview. I need to understand the following error message:

clang: error: no such file or directory: '_REENTRANT'

A similar question was given here ---> Xcode 7.2 - clang: error: no such file or directory:

LIThe problem was solved by implementing the code:

brew install -s ncview

Using homebrew (extra Linux code for Mac), that installed the whole ncview package automatically for the Apple Mac, including it's dependencies.
