H5ML.get_constant_value

Value corresponding to a string

Syntax

value = H5ML.get_constant_value(constant)

Description

value = H5ML.get_constant_value(constant) returns the numerical value corresponding to a given HDF5 enumeration or identifier. constant is specified as a character vector that contains an enumeration (for example, 'H5_ENUM_T') or a predefined identifier (for example, 'H5T_NATIVE_INT'). Since the value corresponding to a given identifier is not guaranteed to remain the same, it is almost always preferable to use the H5ML.compare_values() function instead.

Function parameters:

valueThe numerical value corresponding to the supplied HDF5 enumeration or identifier.
constantA character vector containing a HDF5 enumeration or defined value.

Examples

a = H5ML.get_constant_value('H5T_NATIVE_INT');
