Description

Copy an object to another place (same file or not).

Before copying a newly created object, the file must be flushed.

Examples

// We create a HDF5 file
a = h5open(TMPDIR + "/test.h5");
b = h5open(TMPDIR + "/test1.h5");

// We create a group and a dataset
h5group(a, "Grp_1");
h5write(a.root.Grp_1, "Dset_1", [1 2 ; 3 4]);

// We flush the file to be sure that the modifications
// will be taken into account when the copy will occur
h5flush(a);

// Create a group and a dataset in b
h5group(b, "BGrp");
h5write(b("/BGrp"), "BDset", 11:18);
h5close(b)

// Now we copy Dset_1 to Dset_2 located under root
h5cp(a.root.Grp_1, "Dset_1", a, "Dset_2")

// Copy BDset to a dataset under Grp_1
h5cp(TMPDIR  +"/test1.h5", "/BGrp/BDset", a.root.Grp_1)

// We can change the destination name
h5cp(TMPDIR  +"/test1.h5", "/BGrp/BDset", a.root.Grp_1, "The Foo Dataset")

// We have finished so we free all the resources
h5close(a);
