EOS_SW_WRITEATTR

EOS_SW_WRITEATTR

This function writes/updates attributes in a swath. If the attribute does not exist, it is created. If it does exist, then the value is updated.

Examples


In this example, we write a single precision (32 bit) floating point number with the name “ScalarFloat” and the value 3.14:

f32 = 3.14
status = EOS_SW_WRITEATTR(swathid, "ScalarFloat", f32)

We can update this value by simply calling the function again with the new value:

f32 = 3.14159
status = EOS_SW_WRITEATTR(swathid, "ScalarFloat", f32)

Syntax


Result = EOS_SW_WRITEATTR( swathID, attrname, datbuf [, COUNT=value] [, HDF_TYPE=value] )

Return Value


Returns SUCCEED (0) if successful and FAIL (–1) otherwise.

Arguments


swathID

Swath id (long) returned by EOS_SW_CREATE or EOS_SW_ATTACH.

attrname

Attribute name (string).

datbuf

Attribute values (long). If HDF_TYPE is specified, the attribute values are first converted to the type specified by HDF_TYPE before being stored.

Keywords


COUNT

Number of values to store in attribute (long).

HDF_TYPE

HDF data type of the attribute.
