thanks for your reply. I just tried to get SZIP running in Python with a simple example for test purposes, in my case a numpy array:
dset = group.create_dataset('test', data=np.zeros(10000, dtype=np.float64), fletcher32=True, compression="szip")
When running this, I get an error that SZIP is not available, so I assume that something in my setup or configuration is not correct. Currently I’m using Anaconda, but I’ve read that h5py distributed by Anaconda is built with SZIP disabled and I should use pip instead. But even with the pip version I can’t get my code running.
So first of all I’m not sure if there is a possibility to use SZIP with Python on Windows? I also tried to build h5py against one of my hdf5 versions installed with the binary installers provided on the website, but it completely destroyed my Anaconda setup (to be honest, I didn’t really know what I was doing).
Because since hdf5 1.10.7 AEC is replacing SZIP, so for me it would also be fine to use the AEC library. Is that already implemented in h5py? If yes, how can I call the AEC filter with h5py? I can’t find any reliable information about that in the docs.
In my short C example I’m able to use SZIP, therefore I think that in principle my setup should be correct.
Thanks for your answers!
