HDF5-related tools are available to assist the user in a variety of activities, including examining or managing HDF5 files, converting raw data between HDF5 and other special-purpose formats, moving data and files between the HDF4 and HDF5 formats, measuring HDF5 library performance, and managing HDF5 library and application compilation, installation and configuration. Unless otherwise specified below, these tools are distributed and installed with HDF5.

  • gif2h5Converts a GIF file to an HDF5 file.
  • h5c++Helper script to compile HDF5 C++ applications.
  • h5cc - h5pccHelper scripts to compile HDF5 C applications.
  • h5checkVerifies that an HDF5 file is encoded according to the HDF5 specification.
  • h5clearClears superblock status_flags field, removes metadata cache image, prints EOA and EOF, or sets EOA of a file
  • h5copyCopies an HDF5 object within an HDF5 file or from one HDF5 file to another.
  • h5diffCompare two HDF5 files and report the differences
  • h5dumpExamines the contents of an HDF5 file and dumps those contents into an ASCII file
  • h5fc - h5pfcHelper scripts to compile HDF5 Fortran applications.
  • h5format_convertConverts the layout format version and chunked indexing types of datasets created with a 1.10.x version of the library so that applications built with a 1.8.x version of the library can access these datasets.
  • h5importImports data into an existing or new HDF5 file.
  • h5jam - h5unjamh5jam: Adds user block to front of an HDF5 file, to create a new concatenated file; h5unjam: Splits user block and HDF5 file into two files: user block data and HDF5 data.
  • h5lsLists specified features of HDF5 file contents
  • h5mkgrpCreates new group(s) in an HDF5 file.
  • h5perfTests Parallel HDF5 performance.
  • h5perf_serialTests HDF5 serial performance
  • h5redeployUpdates HDF5 compiler tools after an HDF5 software installation in a new location.
  • h5repackCopies an HDF5 file to a new file with or without compression and/or chunking
  • h5repartRepartitions a file or family of files
  • h5statReports statistics about an HDF5 file and its objects.
  • h5watchOutputs new records appended to a dataset as the dataset grows.
  • h52gifConverts an HDF5 file to a GIF file.
