[Fortran] How to open .hdf5 file extension

  1. Nov 11, 2014 #1
    Hello, i am relatively new linux user so please be as thoroughly descriptive as you can.

    i am starting a project and i have a file "file.hdf5" which contains velocity data i need to process in my fortran program. What do i have to do in order to use the data inside this file?

    i normally use .dat extensions and i simply do:


    do i=1,N

    In this case what procedure should i follow?? Is it possible to do it directly from fortran or i must extract them using python?? I need any libraries for this and if so how do i install and use them ( haven't used any libraries before).

    if anyone has the courage to explain i would appreciate!!
