Description and Overview

H5hut (HDF5 Utility Toolkit) is a veneer API for HDF5: H5hut files are also valid HDF5 files and are compatible with other HDF5-based interfaces and tools. For example, the h5dump tool that comes standard with HDF5 can export H5hut files to ASCII or XML for additional portability. H5hut also includes tools to convert H5hut data to the Visualization ToolKit (VTK) format and to generate scripts for the GNUplot data plotting tool.

Main modules:

  • H5Part: Variable-length 1D particle arrays.
  • H5Block: Rectilinear 3D scalar and vector fields.
  • H5Fed: Adaptively refined tetrahedral and triangle meshes.
