This class represents Spaces in HDF5. These are mostly useful to define the dimensions of a dataset as well as the maximum dimensions to which it can grow. By default, the maximum dimension is equal to the initial dimension. If you want the array to be able to grow arbitrarily large in one dimension, set the maximum dimension for this index to Inf. See the examples below for code how to do this.

Value

Object of class H5S.

Methods

new(type = c("simple", "scalar", "null"), dims = NULL, maxdims = dims, decode_buf = NULL, id = NULL)

Create a new HDF5-space. This can be done by either specifying a space with appropriate dimensions or by decoding a character string that represents an encoded spaceParameters

type

Either a simple space, for which dims and maxdims have to be given or a scalar or null space. See the HDF5 user guide on spaces to explain the differences.

dims

The dimension of the space in case it is of type simple

The maximal dimensions of the space
