I’m trying to create an HDF5 dataset with a custom datatype in Fortran. Please find attached a minimalistic example. The layout of the data is the following: it is a 1D array of “triples”, (x,y,z) coordinates. 1D array is of size 10 and the triple is of size 3. I’m able to write the data into an HDF5 file. However, when I try to check the contents of the newly written file with an “h5dump” utility it shows me different numbers. Am I doing something wrong at the data writing stage or the “h5dump” is just incapable of reading my data in a custom data type? Thank you and have a good day ahead!
