cdflib.getVarMaxAllocRecNum

Maximum allocated record number for variable

Syntax

maxrec = cdflib.getVarMaxAllocRecNum(cdfId,varNum)

Description

maxrec = cdflib.getVarMaxAllocRecNum(cdfId,varNum) returns the record number of the maximum allocated record for a variable in a Common Data Format (CDF) file.

cdfId identifies the CDF file. varNum is a numeric value that identifies the variable. Variable numbers and record numbers are zero-based.

Examples

Open example CDF and get the maximum allocated record number for a variable:

cdfid = cdflib.open('example.cdf');

% Determine maximum record number for variable in file.
maxRecNum = cdflib.getVarMaxAllocRecNum(cdfid,0)

maxRecNum =

    63

%  Clean up
cdflib.close(cdfid)

clear cdfid
