dset_id = H5D.open(fid,'/g3/string');
type_id = H5D.get_type(dset_id);
padding = H5T.get_strpad(type_id);
switch(padding)
    case H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_STR_NULLTERM')
        fprintf('null-terminated\n');
    case H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_STR_NULLPAD')
        fprintf('padded with zeros\n');
