H5LD_GET_DSET_TYPE_SIZE

Returns the size in bytes of the dataset’s datatype.

Procedure:

H5LD_GET_DSET_TYPE_SIZE(dset_id, fields)

Signature:

size_t H5LDget_dset_type_size( hid_t dset_id, char *fields )

Parameters:
hid_t dset_id   IN: The dataset identifier
char *fieldsIN: The pointer to a comma-separated list of fields for a compound datatype.

Description:

This routine allows the user to find out the datatype size for the dataset associated with dset_id. If the parameter fields is NULL, this routine just returns the size of the dataset’s datatype. If the dataset has a compound datatype and fields is non-NULL, this routine returns the size of the datatype(s) for the selected fields specified in fields. Note that ’,’ is the separator for the fields of a compound datatype while ’.’ (dot) is the separator for a nested field. Use a backslash ( \ ) to escape characters in field names that conflict with these two separators.

Returns:

If successful, returns the size in bytes of the dataset’s datatype. Otherwise, returns 0.
