Using Windows-based GrADS-HDF to examine TRMM orbit data files

I am trying to create plots derived from the TRMM 2A12 orbital product (it's the hydrometeor profile data) . It's not gridded data, but rather in orbital swaths. The files are HDF files, so that's why I thought that GrADS might be able to open them. However, I wasn't sure if the HDF files needed to be converted into a GrADS type file (like a .ctl file and the corresponding .dat file). I was told that the files could be converted through the following link:; however I don't see anywhere on the website where this is possible. Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided.
