External links


I've just discovered the very powerfull HDF5 external links.

I use HDF5 1.8.3 on linux compiled with ifort.
I create a file with an external link then I read this file (walk the nodes) with another program.

All nodes are correcly read without any modification code compare to normal internal nodes.

So, this is my question :

Why does hdfview not show external links ?
(pytables 2.1.2 doesn't see external links either(test with the walkNode method)).

Thanks a lot,

Cyril Giraudon.
