H5T_ARRAY-class: Class for HDF5 array datatypes.

Description Value Methods Author(s) See Also

Description

Inherits from class H5T. This class represents an array. As datasets in HDF5 are itself already arrays, this datatype is not needed there. It is mostly useful when a column in a H5T_COMPUND object is intended to be an array. This however makes it difficult to work with such objects in R - as a column of the corresponding data.frame has to be an array. So please use with care.

Value

Object of class H5T_ARRAY.

Methods

new(dims, dtype_base, id = NULL)

Create an array datatype.

Parameters

dims

The dimension of the datatype

dtype_base

The datatype that makes up the elements of the array

id
