hdf5read

hdf5read — Read signals and arrays from an hdf5 file.

Description

hdf5read reads N signals and arrays from a specified hdf5 file.

Syntax

xout1[, xout2, xout3, ..., xoutN] hdf5read ifilename, ivariablename1[, ivariablename2, ivariablename3, ..., ivariablenameN]

Initialization

ifilename -- the hdf5 file's name (in double-quotes).

ivariablename1[, ivariablename2, ivariablename3, ..., ivariablenameN] -- the names of the datasets (in double-quotes) to be read from the hdf5 file.

Performance

xout1,... xoutN -- The specified types of variables that the hdf5 datasets are to be read as. Datasets with a rank larger than 1 must be read as arrays, i-rate signals must also be read as i-rate signals. Other than these restrictions datasets may be read as any type of array or signal. When reading has reached the end of a dataset it no longer outputs any new values.

Examples

Here is a simple example of the hdf5read opcode. It uses the file hdf5read.csd.
