h5diff (Beta version) - Compares two HDF5 files and reports the
h5diff file1 file2 [OPTIONS] [object1 [object2 ] ]
h5diff is a command line tool that compares two HDF5 files, file1 and
file2, and reports the differences between them.
Optionally, h5diff will compare two objects within these files. If only
one object, object1, is specified, h5diff will compare object1 in file1
with object1 in file2. In two objects, object1 and object2, are
specified, h5diff will compare object1 in file1 with object2 in file2.
These objects must be HDF5 datasets.
object1 and object2 must be expressed as absolute paths from the
respective file’s root group.
Additional information, with several sample cases, can be found in the
document H5diff Examples.
The HDF5 files to be compared.
-h Print all differences.
-r Print only the names of objects that differ; do not print the
differences. These objects may be HDF5 datasets, groups, or
Print difference up to count differences, then stop. count must
be a positive integer.
Print only differences that are greater than the limit delta.
delta must be a positive number. The comparison criterion is
whether the absolute value of the difference of two
corresponding values is greater than delta (e.g., |a-b| > delta,
where a is a value in file1 and b is a value in file2).
Print only differences that are greater than a relative error.
relative must be a positive number. The comparison criterion is
whether the absolute value of the difference 1 and the ratio of
two corresponding values is greater than relative (e.g.,
|1-(b/a)| > relative where a is a value in file1 and b is a
value in file2).
Specific object(s) within the files to be compared.
The following h5diff call compares the object /a/b in file1 with the
object /a/c in file2:
h5diff file1 file2 /a/b /a/c
This h5diff call compares the object /a/b in file1 with the same object
h5diff file1 file2 /a/b
And this h5diff call compares all objects in both files:
h5diff file1 file2
h5dump(1), h5ls(1), h5repart(1), h5import(1), gif2h5(1), h52gif(1),
