This is an unofficial re-distribution of the XMDF library that has been ported to run on UNIX-like systems such as Linux and Mac OS X. XMDF is a library produced by the Environmental Modeling Research Laboratory and Brigham Young University which is designed to store scientific data. According to the XMDF website:
XMDF is a C and Fortran language library providing a standard format for the geometry data storage of river cross-sections, 2D/3D structured grids, 2D/3D unstructured meshes, geometric paths through space, and associated time data.
The original source may be obtained from:
XMDF is implemented on top of the HDF5 library, so HDF5 must be installed first. After installing HDF5, the XMDF library may be compiled using the CMake build system:
cd build cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/path/to/installation/directory make install
The CMake build system is available at:

Releases based on XMDF 1.9
Compared to the original source code for XMDF version 1.9, the following changes have been made:
The Fortran module is now built and installed.
Config files are installed that help other CMake-based projects use XMDF.
The project has been re-organized to use CMake as a buildsystem instead of VisualStudio.
xmdf_private.chas been edited to remove references to
H5Eget_free, a function which is no longer part of the HDF5 API. This function has been replaced by a plain call to
