hsize_t nIN: Object for which information is to be returned
H5O_info_t *object_infoOUT: Buffer in which to return object information

(Not currently used; pass as NULL.)


H5O_GET_INFO_BY_IDX2 retrieves the metadata describing an object in the struct object_info, as specified by the location, loc_id, group name, group_name, the index by which objects in that group are tracked, index_field, the order by which the index is to be traversed, order, and an object’s position n within that index .

object_info, in which the object information is returned, is a struct of type H5O_info_t. This struct type is described in the H5O_GET_INFO  function entry.

If loc_id fully specifies the group in which the object resides, group_name can be a dot (.).

The fields parameter contains flags to determine which fields will be filled in in the H5O_info_t struct returned in object_info. These flags are defined in the H5Opublic.h file:

H5O_INFO_BASICFill in the fileno, addr, type, and rc fields
H5O_INFO_TIMEFill in the atime, mtime, ctime, and btime fields
H5O_INFO_NUM_ATTRSFill in the num_attrs field
H5O_INFO_HDRFill in the hdr field
H5O_INFO_META_SIZEFill in the meta_size field


The link access property list, lapl_id, is not currently used; it should be passed in as NULL.


Returns a non-negative value if successful; otherwise returns a negative value.


Coming Soon!
