Variable string length in a compound


I'm new at HDF5 usage and for the last week I've been struggling on
how to read in a C program a compound dataset that has an
uni-dimensional field with a long and two VL strings. I've tried a
large amount of possibilities none seems o work.

any help on this problem would be appreciate.
