cdflib.setVarBlockingFactor

Specify blocking factor for variable

Syntax

cdflib.setVarBlockingFactor(cdfId,varNum,blockingFactor)

Description

cdflib.setVarBlockingFactor(cdfId,varNum,blockingFactor) specifies the blocking factor for a variable in a Common Data Format (CDF) file.

Input Arguments

cdfId

Identifier of a CDF file, returned by a call to cdflib.create or cdflib.open.

varNum

Numeric value identifying a variable in the file. Variable numbers are zero-based.

blockingFactor

Numeric value that specifies the number of records to allocate when writing to an unallocated record.

Examples

Create a CDF, create a variable in the CDF, and then set the blocking factor used with the variable. To run this example, you must be in a writable folder.

cdfid = cdflib.create('your_file.cdf');

% Create a variable in the file.
varNum = cdflib.createVar(cdfid,'Time','cdf_int1',1,[],true,[]);

% Get the current blocking factor used with the variable 
bFactor = cdflib.getVarBlockingFactor(cdfid,varNum)

bFactor =

    0

% Change the blocking factor for the variable
cdflib.setVarBlockingFactor(cdfid,varNum,10);

% Check the new blocking factor .
bFactor = cdflib.getVarBlockingFactor(cdfid,varNum)

bFactor =

    10

%  Clean up
cdflib.delete(cdfid)

clear cdfid

blocking factor

A variable's blocking factor specifies the minimum number of records the library allocates when you write to an unallocated record. If you specify a fractional blocking factor, the library rounds the value down.
