[hdf-forum] The use of the precompiled binaries for Windows

Becker, Thomas
Dear all,

I am quite new to HDF files and since my new employer works an Windows machines I have a bit of a problem.
We are getting every day a couple of HDF5 files in and I would like to read and extract some informations out of them. I do not really want to program anything using the functions of HDF5 1.8.1 but I would like to use e.g. PyTables to establish an workflow in Python in combination with ArcGIS.

Hence I would like to know what do I have to do to get this to work in Windows? I downloaded the binaries already but how to get further?

At home an my Linux machine all the stuff like GDAL or R can read HDF5 out of the box but on a Windows machine I am a bit lost.

Thanks for your help,

Thomas

What do you need to install exactly?  I'm not sure about GDAL or R, but
normally project mantainers do provide binary installers with most of
dependencies included (at least this is the case of PyTables).  Just
google a bit and hopefully you will find what you are looking for.

Cheers,

Hi Francesc,

thanks for your mail. I was not aware that PyTables has the HDF5 library included. I got the NumPy and PyTables installer and the test of PyTables was running smoothly trough without any error messages.

Now I will lok If I can produce somthing able to read HDF5 files.

Thanks a lot

Thomas

Hi Thomas,

Just to clarify:  It's not just that pytables includes the HDF5.  Pytables
is built around hdf5.  Everything you read and write with pytables, by
default at least, will be HDF5.

Best,
Doug Eck
