H5T.equal

Determine equality of data types

Syntax

output = H5T.equal(type1_id,type2_id)

Description

output = H5T.equal(type1_id,type2_id) returns a positive number if the data type identifiers refer to the same data type, and zero to indicate that they do not. A negative value indicates failure. Either of the input values could be a character vector specifying an HDF5 data type.

Examples

Determine if the data type of a dataset is a 32-bit little endian integer.

fid = H5F.open('example.h5');
dset_id = H5D.open(fid,'/g3/integer2D');
dtype_id = H5D.get_type(dset_id);
if H5T.equal(dtype_id,'H5T_STD_I32LE')
    fprintf('32-bit little endian integer\n');
end
