H5T.get_pad

Padding type of least and most-significant bits

Syntax

[lsb,msb] = H5T.get_pad(type_id)

Description

[lsb,msb] = H5T.get_pad(type_id) returns the padding type of the least and most-significant bit padding. type_id is a data type identifier. lsb is the least-significant bit padding type. msb is the most-significant bit padding type. Values for lsb and msb can be H5T_PAD_ZERO, H5T_PAD_ONE, or H5T_PAD_BACKGROUND.

Examples

 fid = H5F.open('example.h5');
 dset_id = H5D.open(fid,'/g3/integer');
 type_id = H5D.get_type(dset_id);
 [lsb,msb] = H5T.get_pad(type_id);
 switch(lsb)
     case H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_PAD_ZERO')
         fprintf('lsb pad type is zeros\n');
     case H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_PAD_ONE');
         fprintf('lsb pad type is ones\n');
     case H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_PAD_BACKGROUND')
         fprintf('lsb pad type is background\n');
 end
 switch(msb)
     case H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_PAD_ZERO')
         fprintf('msb pad type is zeros\n');
     case H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_PAD_ONE');
         fprintf('msb pad type is ones\n');
     case H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_PAD_BACKGROUND')
         fprintf('msb pad type is background\n');
 end
