HDF5 Fortran Required Calls

HDF5 Fortran applications must begin and end, respectively, with the subroutines described below. h5open_f initializes the HDF5 Fortran interface, providing the application with access to the HDF5 Library. h5close_f closes the HDF5 Fortran interface without closing the HDF5 Library, thereby leaving HDF5 available to other software that may require that resource.

h5open_f

Signature:

  SUBROUTINE h5open_f(error)
    INTEGER, INTENT(OUT) :: error

Outputs:

  error - Returns 0 if successful and -1 if fails

h5close_f

Signature:

  SUBROUTINE h5close_f(error)
    INTEGER, INTENT(OUT) :: error

Outputs:

  error - Returns 0 if successful and -1 if fails

HDF5 Fortran Utility Functions

The HDF5 Fortran Library offers two utility functions to facilitate the development of HDF5 Fortran applications. h5offsetof is available only in Fortran 2003 environments; h5kind_to_type is available in any Fortran environment.

h5offsetof

Signature:

  FUNCTION h5offsetof(start,end) RESULT(offset)
    USE, INTRINSIC :: ISO_C_BINDING
    USE H5GLOBAL
    IMPLICIT NONE
    INTEGER(SIZE_T) :: offset
    TYPE(C_PTR), VALUE, INTENT(IN) :: start, end

Inputs:

  start - starting pointer address
  end   - ending pointer address

Outputs:

  offset - offset

h5kind_to_type

Signature:

  INTEGER(HID_T) FUNCTION h5kind_to_type(kind, flag) RESULT(h5_type)
    INTEGER, INTENT(IN) :: kind
    INTEGER, INTENT(IN) :: flag

Inputs:

  kind    - Fortran KIND parameter
  flag    - Whether KIND is of type INTEGER or REAL:
              H5_INTEGER_KIND - integer
              H5_REAL_KIND    - real

Outputs:

  h5_type - Returns the type
