'''A simple example of building a virtual dataset.
This makes four 'source' HDF5 files, each with a 1D dataset of 100 numbers.
Then it makes a single 4x100 virtual dataset in a separate file, exposing
the four sources as one dataset.
import h5py
import numpy as np
# Create source files (1.h5 to 4.h5)
for n in range(1, 5):
with h5py.File('{}.h5'.format(n), 'w') as f:
d = f.create_dataset('data', (100,), 'i4')
d[:] = np.arange(100) + n
# Assemble virtual dataset
layout = h5py.VirtualLayout(shape=(4, 100), dtype='i4')
for n in range(1, 5):
filename = "{}.h5".format(n)
vsource = h5py.VirtualSource(filename, 'data', shape=(100,))
layout[n - 1] = vsource
# Add virtual dataset to output file
with h5py.File("VDS.h5", 'w', libver='latest') as f:
f.create_virtual_dataset('data', layout, fillvalue=-5)
print("Virtual dataset:")
print(f['data'][:, :10])
