Parameters:
hid_t dtype_idIN: Identifier of datatype to set
H5T_pad_t lsb    IN: Padding type for least-significant bits
H5T_pad_t msbIN: Padding type for most-significant bits

Description:

H5T_SET_PAD sets the least and most-significant bits padding types.

TypeDescription
H5T_PAD_ZERO (0)Set background to zeros
H5T_PAD_ONE (1)Set background to ones
H5T_PAD_BACKGROUND (2)Leave background alone

Returns:

Returns a non-negative value if successful; otherwise returns a negative value.
