HDF5 is the most popular file format for storing binary data structures. The HDFView tool makes it convenient to view and browse the contents of a HDF5 file in a Java GUI. But what if you are at the commandline and need a way to quickly view or dump the contents of a HDF5 file? The h5dump does exactly this.

$ sudo apt install hdf5-tools
$ h5dump foobar.h5
$ h5dump --width=1 foobar.h5
$ h5dump -w 1 foobar.h5

Tried with: HDF5 Tools 1.8.16 and Ubuntu 16.04
