Number of last entry for variable attribute
maxEntry = cdflib.getAttrMaxEntry(cdfId,attrNum)
maxEntry = cdflib.getAttrMaxEntry(cdfId,attrNum) returns the number of the last entry for an attribute in a Common Data Format (CDF) file.
cdfId identifies the CDF file.
attrNum is a numeric value that specifies the attribute. Attribute numbers are zero-based. The attribute must have variable scope.
Identifier of a CDF file, returned by a call to cdflib.create or cdflib.open.
Numeric value that identifies the attribute. Attribute numbers are zero-based. The attribute must have variable scope.
Entry number of the last entry in the attribute. Entry numbers are zero-based.
Open the example CDF and get the number of the last entry associated with an attribute with variable scope in the file:
cdfid = cdflib.open('example.cdf'); % The fourth attribute is of variable scope. attrscope = cdflib.getAttrScope(cdfid,3) attrscope = VARIABLE_SCOPE % Get the number of the last entry for this attribute. entrynum = cdflib.getAttrMaxEntry(cdfid,3) entrynum = 3 % Clean up cdflib.close(cdfid); clear cdfid
This function corresponds to the CDF library C API routine CDFgetAttrMaxzEntry.
To use this function, you must be familiar with the CDF C interface. Read the CDF documentation at the CDF Web site.
