Such macros are provided to facilitate application compatibility. Their use and mappings are fully described in API Compatibility Macros in HDF5; we urge you to read that document closely.
If the library and/or application is compiled for Release 1.8 or 1.10 emulation, H5O_GET_INFO will be mapped to H5O_GET_INFO1. With later versions, H5O_GET_INFO is mapped to H5O_GET_INFO2 (and H5O_GET_INFO1 is deprecated).
Specific compile-time compatibility flags and the resulting mappings are as follows:
|No compatibility flag|
|Emulate Release 1.8 interface|
|Emulate Release 1.10 interface|
|Emulate Releases after 1.10|
If you are iterating through a lot of different objects to retrieve information via the H5O_GET_INFO family of routines, you may see memory building up. This can be due to memory allocation for metadata such as object headers and messages when the iterated objects are put into the metadata cache.
If the memory buildup is not desirable, you can configure a smaller cache via H5F_SET_MDC_CONFIG or set the file access property list via H5P_SET_MDC_CONFIG. A smaller sized cache will force metadata entries to be evicted from the cache, thus freeing the memory associated with the entries.
