H5L.create_hard

Create hard link

Syntax

H5L.create_hard(obj_loc_id,obj_name,link_loc_id,link_name,lcpl_id,lapl_id)

Description

H5L.create_hard(obj_loc_id,obj_name,link_loc_id,link_name,lcpl_id,lapl_id) creates a new hard link to a pre-existing object in an HDF5 file. The new link may be one of many that point to that object. obj_loc_id and obj_name specify the location and name, respectively, of the target object, i.e., the object to which the new hard link points.

link_loc_id and link_name specify the location and name, respectively, of the new link. link_name is interpreted relative to link_loc_id.

lcpl_id and lapl_id are the link creation and access property lists associated with the new link.

Examples

fid = H5F.create('myfile.h5');
gid1 = H5G.create(fid,'/g1',0);
gid2 = H5G.create(gid1,'g2',0);
gid3 = H5G.create(gid2,'g3',0);
lcpl = 'H5P_DEFAULT';
lapl = 'H5P_DEFAULT';
H5L.create_hard(gid2,'g3',gid1,'g4',lcpl,lapl);
H5G.close(gid3);
H5G.close(gid2);
H5G.close(gid1);
H5F.close(fid);
