VDS Example Description

A description of what some of the VDS examples in the source code do is included below. For information on using the VDS feature see Virtual Dataset in the New Features in HDF5 Release 1.10. Also see the tutorial Introduction to the Virtual Dataset - VDS which uses the h5_vds.c example described below.
