typeIN: Type of dataspace to be created.
H5Screate creates a new dataspace of a particular
type. Currently supported types are as follows:
Further dataspace types may be added later.
A scalar dataspace,
H5S_SCALAR, has a single element, though that element may be of a complex datatype, such as a compound or array datatype. By convention, the rank of a scalar dataspace is always
0 (zero); think of it geometrically as a single, dimensionless point, though that point can be complex.
A simple dataspace,
H5S_SIMPLE, consists of a regular array of elements.
A null dataspace,
H5S_NULL, has no data elements.
The dataspace identifier returned by this function can be released with
H5Sclose so that resource leaks will not occur.
Returns a dataspace identifier if successful; otherwise returns a negative value.
