Fortran90 Interface: h5pget_external_f
SUBROUTINE h5pget_external_f(prp_id, idx, name_size, name, offset,bytes, hdferr)
INTEGER(HID_T), INTENT(IN) :: prp_id ! Property list identifier
INTEGER, INTENT(IN) :: idx ! External file index.
INTEGER(SIZE_T), INTENT(IN) :: name_size ! Maximum length of name array
CHARACTER(LEN=*), INTENT(OUT) :: name ! Name of an external file
INTEGER, INTENT(OUT) :: offset ! Offset, in bytes, from the
! beginning of the file to the
! location in the file where
! the data starts.
INTEGER(HSIZE_T), INTENT(OUT) :: bytes ! Number of bytes reserved in
! the file for the data
INTEGER, INTENT(OUT) :: hdferr ! Error code
! 0 on success and -1 on failure
END SUBROUTINE h5pget_external_f
IN: Identifier of a dataset creation property list
IN: External file index
IN: Maximum length of name array
OUT: Name of the external file
OUT: Pointer to a location to return an offset value
OUT: Pointer to a location to return the size of the external file data
H5Pget_external returns information about an external file. The external file is specified by its index, idx, which is a number from zero to N-1, where N is the value returned by H5Pget_external_count. At most name_size characters are copied into the name array. If the external file name is longer than name_size with the null terminator, the return value is not null terminated (similar to strncpy()).
If name_size is zero or name is the null pointer, the external file name is not returned. If offset or size are null pointers then the corresponding information is not returned.
Returns a non-negative value if successful; otherwise returns a negative value.
