MATLAB® provides functions in three packages for accessing the HDF4 SD, GD, and SW
interfaces. In addition, interface functions allow direct access to other HDF4 APIs. To use
these functions, you must be familiar with the HDF library. For copyright information, see
|Gateway to HDF multifile annotation (AN) interface|
|Gateway to HDF external data (HX) interface|
|Gateway to HDF H interface|
|Gateway to HDF HD interface|
|Gateway to HDF HE interface|

|Interface to HDF-EOS Point object|
|Gateway to HDF Vgroup (V) interface|
|Gateway to VF functions in HDF Vdata interface|
|Gateway to VH functions in HDF Vdata interface|
|Gateway to VS functions in HDF Vdata interface|
|Gateway to HDF 24-bit raster image (DF24) interface|
|Gateway to HDF 8-bit raster image (DFR8) interface|
Each HDF4 API includes many individual routines that you use to read data from files, write data to files, and perform other related functions.
