CFD General Notation System
This document specifies the exact manner in which, under CGNS conventions, CFD data structures (the SIDS) are to be stored in, i.e., mapped onto, the file structure provided by the HDF database manager. Adherence to the mapping conventions guarantees uniform meaning and location of CFD data within HDF files, and thereby allows the construction of universal software to read and write the data.
The complete HDF Implementation documentation in HTML form is also available for installation on a local system. This is a gzip'ed tar file (78K, 594K gunzip'ed), and may be downloaded by clicking on the link while holding down the shift key, assuming your browser supports this capability. A dialogue box will appear for you to specify the directory and file name. To unpack the contents, do
gunzip -c hdf5.tar.gz | tar xvf -The files will be extracted and stored in the directory hdf5. Point your browser to the local file hdf5/index.html to display the HDF5 Implementation home page. Note also that some links, to other manuals, etc., may not work.
