Vorpal Blocks in VisIt

VorpalVisIt 0.11

  • Uses VorpalDom
  • Extracts all or some blocks which can be plotted
  • Creates a Visit friendly .h5 file
  • There must be a .in file and “”*_Globals_1.h5″.

Having become frustrated with Matlab’s inability to draw more than about 10,000 electrons without becoming unusable slow I thought I’d have a look at VisIt. It’s always nice to be able to plot the blocks from your .pre file so I thought I’d write something like VorpalPlotter to work with VisIt.

Vorpal In File to XML tree structure

VorpalDOM 0.1

  • Parses Vorpal .in files to a XML DOM structure using xml.etree.ElementTree
  • Block finding functions (by type and by name)
  • Scale class to convert between grid and length coordinate systems

With a little fiddling about, python’s built in XML packages can be used to parse the vorpal .in file. xml.etree.ElementTree only needs the block titles (“” for instance) to be altered to “” and a wrapping tag added (the equivalent of an “” tag) for it to be able to parse the file.
