Given an binary property list description in a buffer, H5P_DECODE reconstructs the HDF5 property list and returns an identifier for the new property list. The binary description of the property list is encoded by H5P_ENCODE.
Note that some properties cannot be encoded and therefore will not be available in the decoded property list. These properties are discussed in H5P_ENCODE.
The user is responsible for passing in the correct buffer.
The property list identifier returned by this function should be released withH5Pwith H5P_CLOSE when the identifier is no longer needed so that resource leaks will not develop.
