H5Sselect_hyperslab selects a hyperslab region to add to the current selected region for the dataspace specified by
block arrays must be the same size as the rank of the dataspace. For example, if the dataspace is 4-dimensional, each of these parameters must be a 1-dimensional array of size
The selection operator
op determines how the new selection is to be combined with the already existing selection for the dataspace. The following operators are supported:
|Replaces the existing selection with the parameters from this call. Overlapping blocks are not supported with this operator.|
|Adds the new selection to the existing selection. (Binary OR)|
|Retains only the overlapping portions of the new selection and the existing selection. (Binary AND)|
|Retains only the elements that are members of the new selection or the existing selection, excluding elements that are members of both selections. (Binary exclusive-OR, XOR)|
|Retains only elements of the existing selection that are not in the new selection.|
|Retains only elements of the new selection that are not in the existing selection.|
start array specifies the offset of the starting element of the specified hyperslab.
stride array chooses array locations from the dataspace with each value in the
stride array determining how many elements to move in each dimension. Setting a value in the
stride array to
1 moves to each element in that dimension of the dataspace; setting a value of
2 in allocation in the
stride array moves to every other element in that dimension of the dataspace. In other words, the
stride determines the number of elements to move from the
start location in each dimension. Stride values of
0 are not allowed. If the
stride parameter is
NULL, a contiguous hyperslab is selected (as if each value in the
stride array were set to
count array determines how many blocks to select from the dataspace, in each dimension.
block array determines the size of the element block selected from the dataspace. If the
block parameter is set to
NULL, the block size defaults to a single element in each dimension (as if each value in the
block array were set to
For example, consider a 2-dimensional dataspace with hyperslab selection settings as follows: the
start offset is specified as [1,1],
stride is [4,4],
count is [3,7], and
block is [2,2]. In C, these settings will specify a hyperslab consisting of 21 2x2 blocks of array elements starting with location (1,1) with the selected blocks at locations (1,1), (5,1), (9,1), (1,5), (5,5), etc.; in Fortran, they will specify a hyperslab consisting of 21 2x2 blocks of array elements starting with location (2,2) with the selected blocks at locations (2,2), (6,2), (10,2), (2,6), (6,6), etc.
Regions selected with this function call default to C order iteration when I/O is performed.
Returns a non-negative value if successful; otherwise returns a negative value.
