Copying Array data; get java.lang.Object


#1

I’m using HDFView to extract/copy bits of data from my HDF5 file. Array data types are giving me problems. When I select a Dataset (2D Table of mixed types) and use Export Data to Text File, the scalar values are fine. However, array values are not. They are written as [Ljava.lang.Object;@402bba4f
Behavior when I highlight one cell and copy/paste to another applications (Excel or a text file) is unpredictable. Sometimes I get the array data, and sometimes I get [Ljava.lang.Object;@402bba4f

Any idea what’s going on?
(I’m currently using prebuilt HDFView 3.0.0 for Windows 7)

I thought this worked in previous versions, so did a quick check with HDFView 2.13 for Windows 7. Export of array data works as expected (I get the array elements, not java.lang.Object(s)).
Apparently something changed between 2.13 and 3.0?
