View HDF5 files on linux

question
hdf5

#1

What do you use to view hdf5 files on Linux?

If I create the h5 file from the first example in the HDF5.jl's README, opening it in say hdfview, doesn’t show matrix A no matter how much I double click the test2.h5:

Any better tools for viewing these files?


#2

hdf-compass (should be available in most distros) opens this just fine.

That said, I mostly use Julia to explore HDF5 files :wink:


#3

This is not a linux issue but hdfview is unfortunately broken in Debian/ubuntu:
