This function attaches to the point using the pointname parameter as the identifier.
In this example, we attach to the previously created point, “ExamplePoint”, within the HDF file, PointFile.hdf, referred to by the handle, fid:
pointID = EOS_PT_ATTACH(fid, "ExamplePoint")
The point can then be referenced by subsequent routines using the handle, pointID.
Result = EOS_PT_ATTACH(fid, pointname)
Returns the point handle (pointID) if successful and FAIL (–1) otherwise.Typical reasons for failure are an improper point file id or point name.
Point file id (long) returned by EOS_PT_OPEN.
Name of point (string) to be attached.
