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)
