H5P_SET_FAPL_CORE modifies the file access property list to use the H5FD_CORE driver.
The H5FD_CORE driver enables an application to work with a file in memory, speeding reads and writes as no disk access is made. File contents are stored only in memory until the file is closed. The backing_store parameter determines whether file contents are ever written to disk.
increment specifies the increment by which allocated memory is to be increased each time more memory is required.
While using H5F_CREATE to create a core file, if the backing_store is set to 1 (TRUE), the file contents are flushed to a file with the same name as this core file when the file is closed or access to the file is terminated in memory.
The application is allowed to open an existing file with H5FD_CORE driver. While using H5F_OPEN to open an existing file, if the backing_store is set to 1 and the flags for H5F_OPEN is set to H5F_ACC_RDWR, any change to the file contents are saved to the file when the file is closed. If backing_store is set to 0 and the flags for H5F_OPEN is set to H5F_ACC_RDWR, any change to the file contents will be lost when the file is closed. If the flags for H5F_OPEN is set to H5F_ACC_RDONLY, no change to the file is allowed either in memory or on file.
Currently this driver cannot create or open family or multi files.
Returns a non-negative value if successful. Otherwise returns a negative value.
The backing_store parameter has changed from INTEGER to LOGICAL to better match the C API. (Fortran 90)
