When both the HDF5 Library and the application are built and installed with no specific compatibility flags,H5Tget_array_dimsis mapped to the most recent version of the function, currentlyH5Tget_array_dims2. If the library and/or application is compiled for Release 1.6 emulation,H5Tget_array_dimswill be mapped toH5Tget_array_dims1. Function-specific flags are available to override these settings on a function-by-function basis when the application is compiled.
Specific compile-time compatibility flags and the resulting mappings are as follows:
Interface history: Signature  above is the originalH5Tget_array_dimsinterface and the only interface available prior to HDF5 Release 1.8.0. This signature and the corresponding function are now deprecated but will remain directly callable as H5Tget_array_dims1.
Signature  above was introduced with HDF5 Release 1.8.0 and is the recommended and default interface. It is directly callable asH5Tget_array_dims2.
See “API Compatibility Macros in HDF5” for circumstances under which either of these functions might not be available in an installed instance of the HDF5 Library.
