HDF_SD_DIMGET

HDF_SD_DIMGET

The HDF_SD_DIMGET procedure retrieves information about an SD dataset dimension.

Examples


For an example using this routine, see the example for HDF_SD_DIMSET.

Syntax


HDF_SD_DIMGET, Dim_ID [, /COUNT] [, COMPATIBILITY=variable] [, /FORMAT] [, /LABEL] [, /NAME] [, /NATTR] [, /SCALE] [, /TYPE] [, /UNIT]

Arguments


Dim_ID

A dimension ID as returned by HDF_SD _DIMGETID.

Keywords


COUNT

Set this keyword to return the dimension size.

COMPATIBILITY

Set this keyword to a named variable that will contain a string indicating the dimensional compatibility of the current dimension. Possible values are “BW_COMP” (backwards compatible), “BW_INCOMP” (backwards incompatible), or “FAIL” (the information is unavailable). For further information about dimensional compatibilities, see the HDF User’s Guide, and the BW_INCOMP keyword of HDF_SD_DIMSET. By default, IDL writes HDF files in “BW_COMP” mode.

FORMAT

Set this keyword to return the dimension format description string.

LABEL

Set this keyword to return the dimension label description string.

NAME

Set this keyword to return the dimension name.

NATTR

Set this keyword to return the number of attributes for the dimension.

SCALE

Set this keyword to return the scale of the dimension.

TYPE

Set this keyword to return a string describing the data’s type (i.e., ‘BYTE’).

UNIT

Set this keyword to return the dimension unit description string.
