Number of entries for attribute with variable scope


nentries = cdflib.getNumAttrEntries(cdfId,attrNum)


nentries = cdflib.getNumAttrEntries(cdfId,attrNum) returns the number of entries for the specified attribute in the 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.


Open the example CDF, find an attribute with variable scope, and determine how many entries are associated with the attribute:

cdfid ='example.cdf');

% Get the number of an attribute
% with variable scope
attrNum = cdflib.getAttrNum(cdfid,'Description');

% Check that scope of attribute is variable
attrScope = cdflib.getAttrScope(cdfid,attrNum)


% Detemine the number of entries for the attribute
attrEntries = cdflib.getNumAttrEntries(cdfid,attrNum)

attrEntries =


% Clean up


This function corresponds to the CDF library C API routine CDFgetNumAttrzEntries.

To use this function, you must be familiar with the CDF C interface. Read the CDF documentation at the CDF website.
