H5P_SET_MULTI_TYPE sets the type of data property in the file access property list
This setting enables a user application to specify the type of data the application wishes to access so that the application can retrieve a file handle for low-level access to the particular member of a set of
MULTI files in which that type of data is stored. The file handle is retrieved with a separate call to H5F_GET_VFD_HANDLE (or, in special circumstances, to H5FD_GET_VFD_HANDLE; see Virtual File Layer and List of VFL Functions in HDF5 Technical Notes).
The type of data specified in
type may be one of the following:
|Super block data|
|Dataset raw data|
|Global heap data|
|Local Heap data|
|Object header data|
This function is for use only when accessing an HDF5 file written as a set of files with the
MULTI file driver.
