Programming Note for Fortran Developers:
The integer type of the callback function must match the C integer type. Therefore, for portability, all Fortran callback functions used by
h5literate_by_name_f should be declared as
|hid_t ||IN: Location identifier of subject group; may be a file, group, dataset, named datatype or attribute identifier|
|const char *||IN: Name of subject group|
|H5_index_t ||IN: Type of index which determines the order|
|H5_iter_order_t ||IN: Order within index|
|hsize_t *||IN: Iteration position at which to start |
OUT: Position at which an interrupted iteration may be restarted
|H5L_iterate_t ||IN: Callback function passing data regarding the link to the calling application|
|void *||IN: User-defined pointer to data required by the application for its processing of the link|
|hid_t ||IN: Link access property list|
H5L_ITERATE_BY_NAME iterates through the links in a group, specified by
group_name, in the order of the specified index,
index_type, using a user-defined callback routine
op. H5L_ITERATE_BY_NAME does not recursively follow links into subgroups of the specified group.
index_type specifies the index to be used. If the links have not been indexed by the index type, they will first be sorted by that index then the iteration will begin; if the links have been so indexed, the sorting step will be unnecessary, so the iteration may begin more quickly. Valid values include the following:
|Alpha-numeric index on name|
|Index on creation order|
order specifies the order in which objects are to be inspected along the index specified in
index_type. Valid values include the following:
|Fastest available order|
idx allows an interrupted iteration to be resumed; it is passed in by the application with a starting point and returned by the library with the point at which the iteration stopped.
H5L_ITERATE_BY_NAME is not recursive. In particular, if a member of
group_name is found to be a group, call it
subgroup_a, H5L_ITERATE_BY_NAME does not examine the members of
subgroup_a. When recursive iteration is required, the application must handle the recursion, explicitly calling H5L_ITERATE_BY_NAME on discovered subgroups.
H5L_ITERATE_BY_NAME assumes that the membership of the group being iterated over remains unchanged through the iteration; if any of the links in the group change during the iteration, the function’s behavior is undefined. Note, however, that objects pointed to by the links can be modified.
H5L_ITERATE_BY_NAME is the same as H5G_ITERATE, except that H5G_ITERATE always proceeds in alphanumeric order.
Programming Note for C++ Developers Using C Functions:
If a C routine that takes a function pointer as an argument is called from within C++ code, the C routine should be returned from normally.
Exiting the routine in its normal fashion allows the HDF5 C library to clean up its work properly. In other words, if the C++ application jumps out of the routine back to the C++ “catch” statement, the library is not given the opportunity to close any temporary data structures that were set up when the routine was called. The C++ application should save some state as the routine is started so that any problem that occurs might be diagnosed.
On success, returns the return value of the first operator that returns a positive value, or zero if all members were processed with no operator returning non-zero.
On failure, returns a negative value if something goes wrong within the library, or the first negative value returned by an operator.
