cdflib.setMajority

Specify majority of variables

Syntax

cdflib.setMajority(cdfId,majority)

Description

cdflib.setMajority(cdfId,majority) specifies the majority of variables in a Common Data Format (CDF) file.

Input Arguments

cdfId

Identifier of a CDF file, returned by a call to cdflib.create or cdflib.open.

majority

Either of the following text strings, or its numeric equivalent.

'ROW_MAJOR'C-like array ordering for variable storage. The first dimension in each variable array varies the slowest. This is the default.
'COLUMN_MAJOR'Fortran-like array ordering for variable storage. The first dimension in each variable array varies the fastest.

To get the numeric equivalent of these values, use cdflib.getConstantValue.

Examples

Create a CDF file and specify the majority used by variables in the file. To run this example, you must have write permission in your current folder.

cdfId = cdflib.create('your_file.cdf')

% Specify the majority used by variables in the file
cdflib.setMajority(cdfId,'COLUMN_MAJOR');

% Check the majority value
majority = cdflib.getMajority(cdfId)

majority = 

COLUMN_MAJOR

% Clean up
cdflib.delete(cdfId)
clear cdfId
