Fortran90 Interface: h5screate_f
SUBROUTINE h5screate_f(classtype, space_id, hdferr)
INTEGER, INTENT(IN) :: classtype ! The type of the dataspace
! to be created. Possible values
INTEGER(HID_T), INTENT(OUT) :: space_id ! Dataspace identifier
INTEGER, INTENT(OUT) :: hdferr ! Error code
! 0 on success and -1 on failure
END SUBROUTINE h5screate_f
H5S_class_ttype IN: Type of dataspace to be created.
H5Screate creates a new dataspace of a particular type. Currently supported types are as follows: H5S_SCALAR H5S_SIMPLE H5S_NULL Further dataspace types may be added later.
A scalar dataspace, H5S_SCALAR, has a single element, though that element may be of a complex datatype, such as a compound or array datatype. By convention, the rank of a scalar dataspace is always 0 (zero); think of it geometrically as a single, dimensionless point, though that point can be complex.
A simple dataspace, H5S_SIMPLE, consists of a regular array of elements.
A null dataspace, H5S_NULL, has no data elements.
The dataspace identifier returned by this function can be released with H5Sclose so that resource leaks will not occur.
Returns a dataspace identifier if successful; otherwise returns a negative value.
