SUBROUTINE h5pset_alignment_f(prp_id, threshold, alignment, hdferr)
INTEGER(HID_T), INTENT(IN) :: prp_id ! Property list identifier
INTEGER(HSIZE_T), INTENT(IN) :: threshold ! Threshold value
INTEGER(HSIZE_T), INTENT(IN) :: alignment ! Alignment value

! 0 on success and -1 on failure
END SUBROUTINE h5pset_alignment_f
IN: Identifier for a file access property list
IN: Threshold value. Note that setting the threshold value to 0 (zero) has the effect of a special case, forcing everything to be aligned
IN: Alignment value
H5Pset_alignment sets the alignment properties of a file access property list so that any file object greater than or equal in size to threshold bytes will be aligned on an address which is a multiple of alignment. The addresses are relative to the end of the user block; the alignment is calculated by subtracting the user block size from the absolute file address and then adjusting the address to be a multiple of alignment.
Default values for threshold and alignment are one, implying no alignment. Generally the default values will result in the best performance for single-process access to the file. For MPI IO and other parallel systems, choose an alignment which is a multiple of the disk block size.
If the file space handling strategy is set to H5F_FSPACE_STRATEGY_PAGE, then the alignment set via this routine is ignored. The file space handling strategy is set by H5Pset_file_space_strategy.
Returns a non-negative value if successful; otherwise returns a negative value.
