Pad value for variable

Syntax

padvalue = cdflib.getVarPadValue(cdfId,varNum)

Description

Open the example CDF, and then determine the pad value for a variable:

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

% Check pad value of variable in the file.
padval = cdflib.getVarPadValue(cdfid,0)

padval =

     0

%  Clean up.
cdflib.close(cdfid);

clear cdfid
