Decodes property list received in a binary object buffer and returns a new property list identifier
H5P_DECODE ( buf )
hid_t H5Pdecode( void *buf )
void *buf IN: Buffer holding the encoded property list
Given an binary property list description in a buffer, H5P_DECODE reconstructs the HDF5 property list and returns an identifier for the new property list. The binary description of the property list is encoded by H5Pencode.
Note that some properties cannot be encoded and therefore will not be available in the decoded property list. These properties are discussed in H5Pencode.
The user is responsible for passing in the correct buffer.
The property list identifier returned by this function should be released with H5Pclose when the identifier is no longer needed so that resource leaks will not develop.
Returns an object identifier (non-negative) if successful; otherwise returns a negative value.
