updated, could you check ezacaria?
also added szip package if you want to enable it.

First off, thanks for the package!

I noticed that compression is not enabled when building the package. Even if the data sets show compression in the headers, the compression ratio is always 1 to 1 and no space savings are achieved.

This is easy to fix, though. I added the following to the PKGBUILD to force zlib support:


The basic zlib compression works now, without further pre-requisites (mingw-w64-zlib is already there). I could not compile the szip library in the mingw64 (or get the installation to compile it on the fly), but the zlib is enough for my purposes and therefore I disabled szip support.

I also used the same PKGBUILD with the newer version ( I am not sure if all the fixes in prepare() apply verbatim, though.

This package doesn't have a maintainer so you could add it and maintain it if you wanted.

Can you add High Level library (hdf5_hl) for compiling as well? Thanks!
