Loose frequency information when storing with table=True to HDF5 #3499

I have found what possibly is a bug. When storing data as HDF5 with table=True the read value of series.index.freq from HDF5 is set to None rather than its original values.

Please see:

Not sure if there is a limitation for some reason in PyTables or if this is a bug.


this is not implemented
as a workaround u can store it in an attribute
see the last cookbook entry:

I'll leave this issue open as a reminder - this is pretty straightforward if u would like to do a PR?
