HDF5 general purpose library and file format for storing scientific data

HDF5 is a data model, library, and file format for storing and managing data. It supports an unlimited variety of datatypes, and is designed for flexible and efficient I/O and for high volume and complex data. HDF5 is portable and is extensible, allowing applications to evolve in their use of HDF5. The HDF5 Technology suite includes tools and applications for managing, manipulating, viewing, and analyzing data in the HDF5 format.

Port notes

Mac users may need to set the environment variable "HDF5_USE_FILE_LOCKING" to the five-character string "FALSE" when accessing network mounted files. This is an application run-time setting, not a configure or build setting. Otherwise errors such as "unable to open file" or "HDF5 error" may be encountered.
