Building HDF5 with Arm Compiler

Overview Before you begin Procedure Related information


  1. Create build and install locations, and set them using the environment variables build_dir and install_dir. For example:

    mkdir hdf5_build
    mkdir hdf5_install
    export build_dir=/path/to/hdf5_build
    export install_dir=/path/to/hdf_install

    Replace /path/to/ with the path to the new directories.

  2. Download and unpack HDF5:

    cd $build_dir
    wget https://support.hdfgroup.org/ftp/HDF5/releases/hdf5-1.10/hdf5-1.10.5/src/hdf5-1.10.5.tar.gz
    tar -zxvf hdf5-1.10.5.tar.gz
    cd hdf5-1.10.5
  3. To build parallel IO and the Fortran interface, run ./configure with the following arguments:

    ./configure CC=mpicc FC=mpif90 CXX=mpicxx --enable-parallel --enable-fortran --with-pic --prefix=$install_dir
  4. The configure script does not detect armflang. To detect armflang, patch the libtool script that is generated by the configure script:

    sed -i -e 's#wl=""#wl="-Wl,"#g' libtool
    sed -i -e 's#pic_flag=""#pic_flag=" -fPIC -DPIC"#g' libtool
  5. Build and install HDF5, using:

    make -j
    make install
