as far as I have seen octave (
uses the hdf5 file format, so I would like to know something 
which I couldn't find in the documentation.

Is the hdf5 file format a database or is it a sequential file?

I have tons of matrices I want to store and retrieve from 
the 'database'. Is hdf5 the right thing or can it conly be
used for simple loading and saving data in a sequential way?

If hdf5 is not a database, is it hard to "combine"
some databases like BerkeleyDB or GDB with hdf5 to
create a scientific database?

Thanks for your help
