Number of attributes with variable scope


numAtts = cdflib.getNumAttributes(cdfId)


numAtts = cdflib.getNumAttributes(cdfId) returns the total number of attributes with variable scope in a Common Data Format (CDF) file. cdfId identifies the CDF file.


Open the example CDF and find out how many attributes in the file have variable scope:

cdfid ='example.cdf');

% Determine the number of attributes with variable scope
numAttrs = cdflib.getNumAttributes(cdfid)

numAttrs =
