The HDF5 interface for R

This package provides a simple interface between The R language and the HDF5 libaries. It allows R to write out data in HDF5 format and allows it to read in many (but not all) of the files in HDF5 format which you might encounter.

The package was written by Marcus Daniels, but I have contributed to it a couple of times. You can always get the current approved version from CRAN.

DISCLAIMER: that file may be broken, may be different from last time you downloaded it (even if the version number hasn't changed), may be different from a file with the same version number released by another maintainer, may fail to install, may cause demons to fly out of your nose etc etc.
