In “Introduction to HDF5” is the sentence:
"Compact storage is used when the amount of data is small and can
be stored directly in the object header. (Note: Compact storage is not
supported in this release.)"
The note “Compact storage is not supported in this release” is out of
date I believe? Looking at the latest version of the official HDF5 C
library, the code seems to use compact storage in some places?
Thankful for any clarifications on this.
