 * Function:  H5Dread
 *
 * Purpose:  Reads (part of) a DSET from the file into application
 *    memory BUF. The part of the dataset to read is defined with
 *    MEM_SPACE_ID and FILE_SPACE_ID.   The data points are
 *    converted from their file type to the MEM_TYPE_ID specified.
 *    Additional miscellaneous data transfer properties can be
 *    passed to this function with the PLIST_ID argument.
 *
 *    The FILE_SPACE_ID can be the constant H5S_ALL which indicates
 *    that the entire file data space is to be referenced.
 *
 *    The MEM_SPACE_ID can be the constant H5S_ALL in which case
 *    the memory data space is the same as the file data space
 *    defined when the dataset was created.
 *
 *    The number of elements in the memory data space must match
 *    the number of elements in the file data space.
 *
 *    The PLIST_ID can be the constant H5P_DEFAULT in which
 *    case the default data transfer properties are used.
 *
 * Return:  Non-negative on success/Negative on failure
