writing usable hdf files

this may be somewhat off topic... i am trying to figure out how to write hdf5 
data files which octave will read. (i have a c code which has a whole lot of 
data in a 2d array and i want to dump this to a file so i can read it in 
octave.) now the hdf5 distribution comes with an example code, h5_write, which 
generates a data file. when i try to read this file into octave though, i get:

>> load -hdf5 SDS.h5 x
warning: load: can't read `IntArray' (unknown datatype)

so, obviously, h5_write is not a great starting point in learning how to write 
hdf5 files for octave. does anyone have any pointers on how to go about doing 
this? or what changes might be made to h5_write.c to make it write something 
understandable? thanks!

best regards,
