H5D_GET_TYPE

Returns an identifier for a copy of the datatype for a dataset

Procedure:

H5D_GET_TYPE(dataset_id)

Signature:

hid_t H5Dget_type(hid_t dataset_id )

SUBROUTINE h5dget_type_f(dataset_id, datatype_id, hdferr) 
  IMPLICIT NONE 
  INTEGER(HID_T), INTENT(IN) :: dataset_id    ! Dataset identifier
  INTEGER(HID_T), INTENT(OUT) :: datatype_id  ! Datatype identifier
  INTEGER, INTENT(OUT) :: hdferr              ! Error code 
                                              ! 0 on success and -1 on failure
END SUBROUTINE h5dget_type_f

Parameters:
hid_t dataset_id    IN: Identifier of the dataset to query

Description:

H5D_GET_TYPE returns an identifier for a copy of the datatype for a dataset. The datatype should be released with the H5T_CLOSE function.

If a dataset has a named datatype, then an identifier to the opened datatype is returned. Otherwise, the returned datatype is read-only. If atomization of the datatype fails, then the datatype is closed.

A datatype identifier returned from this function should be released with H5T_CLOSE when the identifier is no longer needed so that resource leaks will not occur.

Returns:

Returns a datatype identifier if successful; otherwise returns a negative value.
