[name,offset,size] = H5P.get_external(plist_id,idx)


[name,offset,size] = H5P.get_external(plist_id,idx) returns information about the external file specified by the dataset creation property list plist_id. The idx specifies the external file index, which is a number from zero to N-1, where N is the value returned by H5P.get_external_count.
