Return information about an HDF5 file



S = hdf5info(filename) returns a structure fileinfo whose fields contain information about the contents of the HDF5 file filename. filename is a string that specifies the name of the HDF5 file.

S = hdf5info(...,'ReadAttributes',BOOL) specifies whether hdf5info returns the values of the attributes or just information describing the attributes. By default, hdf5info reads in attribute values (BOOL = true).


To find out about the contents of the HDF5 file, look at the GroupHierarchy field returned by hdf5info.

To probe further into the hierarchy, keep examining the Groups field.
