I have created an HDF file that contains a dataset with 2 fields. Each field is a compound datatype (the same datatype). In that compound datatype, one of the fields is an array of a compound datatype. When I use h5dump to dump the dataset, I get what I expected, the value is an array of values. But when I look at the dataset in HDFView the compound datatype does not end up under the main datatype and the values get cascaded into the next field.
So my questions is
- Can HDFView handle a compound data type that contains an array of compound datatypes?
