I’ve been trying to solve a problem which requires me to be able to read a compound datatype without knowledge of the underlying struct. I’m aware that this question has been asked on this forum in several forms over the years but I haven’t been able to parse out the information that will allow me to solve the problem.
In this I’m assuming for now that the datatypes which make up the compound dataset are integer/float or strings and all fixed length. Essentially I need to be able to visit every named field and read the data from the associated buffer. I have been able to get the lists of fields and their associated types but any help on the read side would be appreciated
