High-level functions that wrap multiple low-level APIs to perform common operations

The HDF5 Lite API consists of higher-level functions which do more operations per call than the basic HDF5 interface. The purpose is to wrap intuitive functions around certain sets of features in the existing APIs. This version of the API has two sets of functions: dataset and attribute related functions.

Programming Hints:

To use any of these functions or subroutines, you must first include the relevant include file (C) or module (Fortran) in your application.

The following line includes the HDF5 Lite package, H5LT, in C applications: 
         #include "hdf5_hl.h"

This line includes the H5LT module in Fortran applications: 
         use h5lt
