Returns settings for automatic error stack traversal function and its data.


herr_t H5Eget_auto( H5E_auto_t * func, void **client_data )

herr_t H5Eget_auto( hid_t estack_id, H5E_auto_t * func, void **client_data )


H5Eget_auto is a macro that is mapped to either H5E_GET_AUTO1 or H5E_GET_AUTO2, depending on the needs of the application.

Such macros are provided to facilitate application compatibility. Their use and mappings are fully described in “API Compatibility Macros in HDF5”; we urge you to read that document closely.

When both the HDF5 Library and the application are built and installed with no specific compatibility flags, H5Eget_auto is mapped to the most recent version of the function, currently H5E_GET_AUTO2. If the library and/or application is compiled for Release 1.6 emulation, H5E_GET_AUTO will be mapped to H5E_GET_AUTO1. Function-specific flags are available to override these settings on a function-by-function basis when the application is compiled.

Specific compile-time compatibility flags and the resulting mappings are as follows:
