Which version of h5py introduced the "check_string_dtype" function?  I'm using version 2.9.0 (from Anaconda) on a Mac running MacOS 10.14.6 and Python3.7.4 (also from Anaconda).

If "check_string_dtype" is too new for my version of h5py any ideas on how to code around it?  I want to raise an error if a dataset consists of a variable length string when I'm checking for CF compliance.

Thanks for any information,

Catherine

Hi Catherine,

It was added in 2.10. There's an 'Older API' heading in the docs summarising what to do in older versions:

You can also look at the 2.9 docs - there's a link near the lower left corner to switch between versions:
