Note that you must download the source file HDFView-3.1.0-centos7_64.tar.gz yourself from the HDF group, which requires making an account on their site. Link here. Copy the file to the same directory as the PKGBUILD before running makepkg.

If using yay for example, run yay -S hdfview-bin, and you will see an error message about the missing source file. Then, copy HDFView-3.1.0-centos7_64.tar.gz into ~/.cache/yay/hdfview-bin and run yay -S hdfview-bin again to complete the installation.

If anyone knows how to circumvent the HDF group's forcing of you to make an account so I can have the PKGBUILD download the source file, I'm all ears. Their license does not disallow redistributing the binaries, but rehosting them seems like poor form.
