Additional New APIs
This page describes various new functions, a new struct, and new macros that are either unrelated to new features described elsewhere or have aspects that are unrelated to the feature where they are otherwise described. The page includes the following sections:
 
Versioned Functions and Struct with Associated Macros

Two functions in the HDF5 C interface, and a struct associated with one of those functions, have been versioned in this release. At the same time, interface compatibility macros were created for programmatic management of these functions. See API Compatibility Macros in HDF5 for a detailed discussion of versioned functions and structs and the related macros.

These functions, struct, and macros are documented in the HDF5 Reference Manual:

H5Fget_info Macro for programmatic control of versioned functions
H5Fget_info1 Original function
H5Fget_info2 New version introduced at Release 1.10.0
H5F_info2_t Struct used by H5Fget_info2
 
H5Rdereference Macro for programmatic control of versioned functions
H5Rdereference1    Original function
H5Rdereference2 New version introduced at Release 1.10.0
 
Property List Encoding and Decoding Functions

Functions have been added in the HDF5 C interface to encode and decode property lists.

These functions are documented in the HDF5 Reference Manual:

 
External File Prefix Functions

Datasets that store raw data in external files can be created in HDF5. Functions have been added in the HDF5 C interface to enable such external files to be located via a relative path from the directory where the HDF5 file containing such a dataset is located:

These functions are documented in the HDF5 Reference Manual:
