h4mapwriter is a utility that creates an HDF4 file content map for a given HDF4 file. An HDF4 file content map is an XML document that describes the file structure, file metadata, and offset/length of raw data in an HDF4 file. The map can be used to retrieve data from an HDF4 file without relying on the HDF4 library.
The current release is 1.0.6, which was released on Nov 1, 2013. The latest formal release of h4mapwriter can be obtained from this page. h4mapwriter requires the HDF4 library, which also requires the ZLIB and JPEG external libraries. For convenience, these external libraries are included in the source code package below.
