H5T.set_inpad

Specify how unused internal bits are to be filled

Syntax

H5T.set_inpad(type_id,pad_type)

Description

H5T.set_inpad(type_id,pad_type) sets how unused internal bits of a floating point type are filled. type_id is the identifier of the data type. Specify how to fill the bits in pad_type which can be one of these character vectors or string scalars, or its equivalent numerical value:

H5T_PAD_ZERO
H5T_PAD_ONE
H5T_PAD_BACKGROUND (leave background alone)

Examples

type_id = H5T.copy('H5T_NATIVE_FLOAT');
pad_type = H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_PAD_ZERO');
H5T.set_inpad(type_id,pad_type);
