The HDFView “is a visual tool for browsing and editing NCSA HDF4 and HDF5 files.”
The Linux version appears to be 32-bit and not having all the necessary 32-bit libraries caused my system unable to run it. So, I tried to run Solaris version. I had to tweak
JAVAPATH variables in <HDFVIEW_HOME>/bin/hdfview.sh to get the application to run.
