backward compatibility mode

When specified, ensures that any new CDF file created using CDF V3.0 (or later) will be readable by clients using version 2.7 of the CDF library. CDF 3.0 and later releases use a 64-bit file offset to allow for files greater than 2G bytes in size. CDF library versions released before CDF 3.0 use a 32-bit file offset.

Tips

  • Setting backward compatibility mode affects only your current MATLAB® session, or until you call cdflib.setFileBackward again.
