Set size of data space




H5S.set_extent_simple(space_id,rank,h5_dims,h5_maxdims) sets the size of the data space identified by space_id. The rank argument is the number of dimensions used in the data space. h5_dims is an array specifying the size of each dimension of the dataset. h5_maxdims is an array specifying the upper limit on the size of each dimension.

    Note:   The HDF5 library uses C-style ordering for multidimensional arrays, while MATLAB® uses FORTRAN-style ordering. The h5_dims and h5_maxdims parameters assume C-style ordering. Please consult "Using the MATLAB Low-Level HDF5 Functions" in the MATLAB documentation for more information.


space_id = H5S.create('H5S_SIMPLE');
dims = [100 200];
h5_dims = fliplr(dims);
maxdims = [100 H5ML.get_constant_value('H5S_UNLIMITED')];
h5_maxdims = fliplr(maxdims);
H5S.set_extent_simple(space_id,2,h5_dims, h5_maxdims);
