Hi Erik,

I was mistaken. They are C-files. The info of the codes is as follows;

   @file      hdf5_merge.c
   @date      Thu 10 Jan 2002
   @author    Thomas Radke
              This utility program takes a list of Cactus HDF5 datafiles,
              merges them at the group hierarchy level and dumps the
              tree to a new HDF5 file.
   @version   $Id: hdf5_merge.c,v 1.3 2009/09/29 14:38:14 schnetter Exp $

All the utility codes (hdf5_merge, hdf5_extract, & hdf5_double_to_single)
could be built on ET and could do someting e.g. merging chunked data but
they don't seem to match with current Carpet HDF5 format. I couldn't open
the combined file with Visit.

Is there any other way of merging chunked hdf5 data? I attached the outdated
HDF5 thorn.
