A GUI Tool for Editing Files for the HDF4 and HDF5 Programs


HDFView is a graphical tool designed to allow users of the HDF4 and HDF5 programs to easily look through, create and edit HDF4 and HDF5 files.

Using HDFView on RCC Resources

HDFView is available on HPC Nodes. To open a session in HDFView, no module needs to be loaded, however, the following command must be entered into the command line. HDFView is a JAR file so the full path to the JAR file must be written out in order to run the program.

java -jar /opt/hpc/gnu/HDF_Group/HDFView/2.11.0/lib/jhdfview.jar

This will start the GUI for HDFView. From there you can load an HDF file and work with the data. For further information on HDFView and usage examples, refer to the main website for HDFView.
