This is the base class for all property lists, but most have a specialized class. It inherits all functions of the H5RefClass. It is also the base class for many other classes, specifically

Dataset Creation

H5P_DATASET_CREATE

Dataset Access

H5P_DATASET_ACCESS

Dataset Transfer

H5P_DATASET_XFER

Link Creation

H5P_LINK_CREATE

Link Access

H5P_LINK_ACCESS

Object Creation

H5P_OBJECT_CREATE

Object Copy

H5P_OBJECT_COPY

Attribute Creation

H5P_ATTRIBUTE_CREATE

The base class is unlikely to be needed by users - they should use the appropriate subclass required.

## Value

Object of class H5P.

## Methods

new(id = NULL)

Create a new property list; this function itself is unlikely to be needed by users. Users should use the classes of the type they actually requireParameters

id

Internal use only
