HDF5 for Python (H5PY) is a general-purpose Python interface to the Hierarchical Data Format library, version 5. HDF5 was designed to be a versatile, mature scientific software library designed for the fast, flexible storage of enormous amounts of data.
From a Python programmer's perspective, HDF5 provides a robust way to store data, organized by name in a tree-like fashion.
You can create datasets (arrays on disk) hundreds of gigabytes in size, and perform random-access I/O on desired sections. Datasets are organized in a filesystem-like hierarchy using containers called "groups", and accessed using the tradional POSIX /path/to/resource syntax.
H5py provides a simple, robust read/write interface to HDF5 data from Python. Existing Python and Numpy concepts are used for the interface; for example, datasets on disk are represented by a proxy class that supports slicing, and has dtype and shape attributes. HDF5 groups are presented usin...
