- Accessor to the variable length metalayers.
This class inherits from the MutableMapping class, so every method in this class is available. It behaves very similarly to a dictionary, and variable length metalayers can be appended in the typical way:
schunk.vlmeta['vlmeta1'] = 'something'
And can be retrieved similarly:
value = schunk.vlmeta['vlmeta1']
Once added, a vlmeta can be deleted with:
Moreover, a getall() method returns all the variable length metalayers as a dictionary.
