These examples are used in the Learning The Basics topic. See Compiling Your HDF5 Applications for details on compiling them. PLEASE NOTE that the example programs are listed in the order they are expected to be run. Some example programs use files created in earlier examples.
These examples (C, C++, Fortran) are provided in the HDF5 source code and (Unix) binaries.
