[SciPy-user] Real-time plotting and data storage format questions

netCDF is mostly used for geophysical, in particular atmospheric data,
although I also use it for more general physical model results. There
are a wealth of command line tools for inspecting and operating on
I found the AMBER (an MD package -
http://amber.scripps.edu/netcdf/nctraj.html) convention useful in
working out how to lay out my particle data in a netCDF file.
I've never used HDF, so I can't give a comparison.
