Re: HDF files

Are these HDF5 or HDF4 files? If the latter, I think you neeed to use the HDF4 
(or HDF4-EOS) libraries. If HDF5, The NetCDF-Java library can read some of 
them, but the netcdf C library cannot, and you will need the HDF5 (or HDF5-EOS) 
if you need a C library to do so.

Excuse my poor English but I need your help. I am working with information download from satellites but they are in HDF format since I am new in this, I just recently installed Netcdf, I would like to know if there is a routine in Netcdf that allow me to work with this type of file. I will appreciate any help in this matter. Thanks in advance, Juan B. Del Rosario
