Yes, I think so. Here it is.

* Package name    : h4h5tools
  Version         : 1.2
  Upstream Author : Jay Bonci <jaybonci@cpan.org>
* URL             : http://hdf.ncsa.uiuc.edu/h4toh5/
* License         : similar to the old 4-clause BSD
  Description     : Conversion tools between HDF4 and HDF5 formats

HDF (hierarchical data format) is a file format for scientific data.
Version 5 is believed to be a much superior format, however it is
incompatible with the old tools. This package provides complete and
accurate conversion tools between the two formats. The h5utils package
already contains some conversion tools, but they are much less complete.
