Reads an attribute from disk

Procedure:

H5LT_GET_ATTRIBUTE_FLOAT (loc_id, obj_name, attr_name, data)

Signature:

<pre><code class="language-c">herr_t H5LTget_attribute_float( hid_t loc_id, const char *obj_name, const char *attr_name,  float *data )</code></pre>

<pre><code class="language-fortran">subroutine h5ltget_attribute_float_f(loc_id, dset_name, attr_name, &
                                     buf, errcode)

  integer(HID_T), intent(IN) :: loc_id           ! file or group identifier 
  character(LEN=*), intent(IN) :: dset_name      ! name of the dataset 
  character(LEN=*), intent(IN) :: attr_name      ! name of the attribute

  real, intent(INOUT), dimension(*) :: buf       ! data buffer
end subroutine h5ltget_attribute_float_f</code></pre>

Parameters:
hid_t loc_idIN: Identifier of the object ( dataset or group) to read the attribute from
const char *obj_nameIN: The name of the object that the attribute is attached to
const char *attr_nameIN: The attribute name
float * data

OUT: Buffer with data

Description:

 H5LT_GET_ATTRIBUTE_FLOAT reads an attribute named attr_name that is attached to the object specified by the name obj_name. The HDF5 datatype of the attribute is H5T_NATIVE_FLOAT.

Returns:

Returns a non-negative value if successful; otherwise returns a negative value.
