Why to use HDF5 and ILNumerics?
HDF5 is a file format (Hierarchical Data Format) especially desgined to handle huge amount of numerical data. Just to mention an example, NASA chose it to be the standard file format for storing data from the Earth Observing System (EOS).
ILNumerics easily handles HDF5 files. They can be used to exchange data with other software tools, for example Matlab mat files. In this post I will show a step by step guide – how to interface ILNumerics with Matlab.
