Doxygen Generated Reference Manual
The HDF5 C-API documentation based on Doxygen is available at
It includes all core library functions documented in the previous location here.
This is the official documentation of HDF5. All other locations may be invalid.
Since this portion of the HDF5 documentation is now part of the source code, it gets the same treatment as code. In other words, issues, inaccuracies, corrections should be reported as issues in GitHub (https://github.com/HDFGroup/hdf5/issues), and pull requests will be reviewed and accepted as any other code changes.
