H5L.move

Syntax

H5L.move(src_loc_id,src_name,dest_loc_id,dest_name,lcpl_id,lapl_id)

Description

H5L.move(src_loc_id,src_name,dest_loc_id,dest_name,lcpl_id,lapl_id) renames a link within an HDF5 file. The original link, src_name, is removed from the group graph and the new link, dest_name, is inserted; this change is accomplished as an atomic operation.

src_loc_id and src_name identify the existing link. src_loc_id is either a file or group identifier; src_name is the path to the link and is interpreted relative to src_loc_id.

dest_loc_id and dest_name identify the new link. dest_loc_id is either a file or group identifier; dest_name is the path to the link and is interpreted relative to dest_loc_id.

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

Examples

Rename the '/g2' group to '/g2/g3'.

srcFile = fullfile(matlabroot,'toolbox','matlab','demos','example.h5');
copyfile(srcFile,'myfile.h5');
fileattrib('myfile.h5','+w');
fid = H5F.open('myfile.h5','H5F_ACC_RDWR','H5P_DEFAULT');
g2id = H5G.open(fid,'g2');
H5L.move(fid,'g3',g2id,'g3','H5P_DEFAULT','H5P_DEFAULT');
H5G.close(g2id);
H5F.close(fid);
