Discussing standard attributes...

I'd like to start the ball rolling by saying that we routinely use an attribute attached to the time step group which is called "TimeValue". This is a double precision value representing the actual time for the step in question. I'd very much like this to be documented somewhere as a 'convention' so that if and when others have need of the time, they use the same method.


// Write out a TimeValue attribute for this step
h5part_int64_t attrib = H5PartWriteStepAttrib(
this->H5FileId, "TimeValue", H5T_NATIVE_DOUBLE, &this->TimeValue, 1);
