Re: linking problems with HDF5 on cygwin...

Hi, Ed.

This looks like your linker can't find the main HDF5 library.  Are you
linking against both libhdf5.a and libhdf5_hl.a?  Are they given to the
linker in the right order?  libhdf5_hl.a should come first, I believe, 
since it depends on libhdf5.a.
