HDF5 Source Code

Latest Version:   HDF5-1.10.1       [ Newsletter 153 ] [ Release File ]

Source Code

The source code distributions for Unix and Windows are identical except for the line endings.

Currently, the SWMR feature can only be tested on UNIX platforms. The SWMR testing is disabled on Windows.

PLEASE be aware:   On UNIX platforms the HDF5 tests must be run on a local file system or a parallel file system running GPFS or Lustre in order for the SWMR tests to complete properly. For example:

    cd LocalFSpath
    mkdir build
    cd build
    /path_to_HDF5_source/configure ...
    make check
    make install
