H5A.write

Write attribute

Syntax

H5A.write(attr_id,type_id,buf)

Description

H5A.write(attr_id,type_id,buf) writes the data in buf into the attribute specified by attr_id. type_id specifies the attribute's memory datatype. The memory datatype should be 'H5ML_DEFAULT', which specifies that MATLAB® should determine the appropriate memory datatype.

    Note:   The HDF5 library uses C-style ordering for multidimensional arrays, while MATLAB uses FORTRAN-style ordering. If the MATLAB array size is 5-by-4-by-3, then the HDF5 library should be reporting the attribute size as 3-by-4-by-5. Please consult "Using the MATLAB Low-Level HDF5 Functions" in the MATLAB documentation for more information.

Examples

Write a scalar double precision attribute.

acpl = H5P.create('H5P_ATTRIBUTE_CREATE');
type_id = H5T.copy('H5T_NATIVE_DOUBLE');
space_id = H5S.create('H5S_SCALAR');
fid = H5F.create('myfile.h5');
attr_id = H5A.create(fid,'my_attr',type_id,space_id,acpl);
H5A.write(attr_id,'H5ML_DEFAULT',10.0)
H5A.close(attr_id);
H5F.close(fid);
H5T.close(type_id);
