Mantissa normalization type


norm_type = H5T.get_norm(type_id)


norm_type = H5T.get_norm(type_id) returns the mantissa normalization of a floating-point data type. type_id is a data type identifier. norm_type can be H5T_NORM_IMPLIED, H5T_NORM_MSBSET, or H5T_NORM_NONE.


 fid ='example.h5');
 dset_id =,'/g3/float');
 type_id = H5D.get_type(dset_id);
 norm_type = H5T.get_norm(type_id);
     case H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_NORM_IMPLIED')
         fprintf('MSB of mantissa is not stored, always 1\n');
     case H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_NORM_MSBSET');
         fprintf('MSB of mantissa is always 1\n');
     case H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_NORM_NONE')
         fprintf('mantissa is not normalized\n');
