H5T.set_pad

Set padding type for least and most significant bits

Syntax

H5T.set_pad(type_id,lsb,msb)

Description

H5T.set_pad(type_id,lsb,msb) sets the padding type for the least and most-significant bits. type_id is the identifier of the data type. lsb specifies the padding type for least-significant bits; msb for most-significant bits. Valid padding types are H5T_PAD_ZERO, H5T_PAD_ONE, or H5T_PAD_BACKGROUND (leave background alone).

Examples

type_id = H5T.copy('H5T_NATIVE_INT');
lsb = H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_PAD_ONE');
msb = H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_PAD_ZERO');
H5T.set_pad(type_id,lsb,msb);
