H5Edit.exe for Windows 10


I am looking for the program H5Edit.exe for Windows 10. I only can find the source code. Where can I download the binary?


h5edit depends on lex and yacc, which are not part of a “standard” Windows installation. The three obvious choices to get a UNIX-like environment going on a Windows machine are:

  1. Cygwin https://www.cygwin.com/
  2. MSYS2 https://www.msys2.org/
  3. WSL2 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/wsl2-index

(Notice that 3. won’t give you a Windows binary, but a binary for the Linux distro you chose.)

All of them give you the necessary tools to follow the installation instructions in
