/*-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 * Function:      H5D_create
 *
 * Purpose: Creates a new dataset with name NAME in file F and associates
 *          with it a datatype TYPE for each element as stored in the
 *          file, dimensionality information or dataspace SPACE, and
 *          other miscellaneous properties CREATE_PARMS.  All arguments
 *          are deep-copied before being associated with the new dataset,
 *          so the caller is free to subsequently modify them without
 *          affecting the dataset.
 *
 * Return:  Success:    Pointer to a new dataset
 *
 *          Failure:    NULL
 *
 * Errors:
 *          DATASET       CANTINIT  Can't update dataset header. 
 *          DATASET       CANTINIT  Problem with the dataset name. 
 *          DATASET       CANTINIT  Fail in file space allocation for
 *                            chunks
 *
 * Programmer:    Robb Matzke
 *          Thursday, December  4, 1997
 *
 * Modifications:
 *    Robb Matzke, 9 Jun 1998
 *    The data space message is no longer cached in the dataset struct.
 *
 *    Robb Matzke, 27 Jul 1998
 *    Added the MTIME message to the dataset object header.
 *
 *    Robb Matzke, 1999-10-14
 *    The names for the external file list are entered into the heap hear
 *    instead of when the efl message is encoded, preventing a possible
 *    infinite recursion situation.
 *
 *      Raymond Lu
 *      Tuesday, October 2, 2001
 *      Changed the way to retrieve and set property for generic property 
 *      list.
 *
 *    Raymond Lu, 26 Feb 2002
 *    A new fill value message is added.  Two properties, space allocation
 *    time and fill value writing time, govern space allocation and fill
 *      value writing.   
 *
 *      Bill Wendling, 1. November 2002
 *      Removed the cache updating mechanism. This was done so that it
 *      can be called separately from the H5D_create function. There were
 *      two of these mechanisms: one to create and insert into the parent
 *      group the H5G_entry_t object and the other to update based upon
 *      whether we're working with an external file or not. Between the
 *      two, there is a conditional call to allocate space which isn't
 *      part of updating the cache.

/*-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 * Function:      H5Diterate
 *
 * Purpose: This routine iterates over all the elements selected in a memory
 *      buffer.  The callback function is called once for each element selected
 *      in the dataspace.  The selection in the dataspace is modified so
 *      that any elements already iterated over are removed from the selection
 *      if the iteration is interrupted (by the H5D_operator_t function
 *      returning non-zero) in the "middle" of the iteration and may be
 *      re-started by the user where it left off.
 *
 *      NOTE: Until "subtracting" elements from a selection is implemented,
 *          the selection is not modified.
 *
 * Parameters:
 *      void *buf;          IN/OUT: Pointer to the buffer in memory containing
 *                              the elements to iterate over.
 *      hid_t type_id;      IN: Datatype ID for the elements stored in BUF.
 *      hid_t space_id;     IN: Dataspace ID for BUF, also contains the
 *                              selection to iterate over.
 *      H5D_operator_t op; IN: Function pointer to the routine to be
 *                              called for each element in BUF iterated over.
 *      void *operator_data;    IN/OUT: Pointer to any user-defined data
 *                              associated with the operation.
 *
 * Operation information:
 *      H5D_operator_t is defined as:
 *          typedef herr_t (*H5D_operator_t)(void *elem, hid_t type_id,
 *              hsize_t ndim, hssize_t *point, void *operator_data);
 *
 *      H5D_operator_t parameters:
 *          void *elem;         IN/OUT: Pointer to the element in memory containing
 *                                  the current point.
 *          hid_t type_id;      IN: Datatype ID for the elements stored in ELEM.
 *          hsize_t ndim;       IN: Number of dimensions for POINT array
 *          hssize_t *point;    IN: Array containing the location of the element
 *                                  within the original dataspace.
 *          void *operator_data;    IN/OUT: Pointer to any user-defined data
 *                                  associated with the operation.
 *
 *      The return values from an operator are: 
 *          Zero causes the iterator to continue, returning zero when all
 *              elements have been processed. 
 *          Positive causes the iterator to immediately return that positive
 *              value, indicating short-circuit success.  The iterator can be
 *              restarted at the next element. 
 *          Negative causes the iterator to immediately return that value,
 *              indicating failure. The iterator can be restarted at the next
 *              element.
 *
 * Return:  Returns the return value of the last operator if it was non-zero,
 *          or zero if all elements were processed. Otherwise returns a
 *          negative value.
