python-Silo - A python wrapper for silo
Silo is a library for reading and writing a wide variety of scientific data to
binary, disk files. The files Silo produces and the data within them can be
easily shared and exchanged between wholly independently developed applications
running on disparate computing platforms. Consequently, Silo facilitates the
development of general purpose tools for processing scientific data. One of the
more popular tools that process Silo data files is the VisIt visualization tool.
Silo supports gridless (point) meshes, structured meshes, unstructured-zoo and
unstructured-arbitrary-polyhedral meshes, block structured AMR meshes,
constructive solid geometry (CSG) meshes, piecewise-constant (e.g.
zone-centered) and piecewise-linear (e.g. node-centered) variables defined on
the node, edge, face or volume elements of meshes as well as the decomposition
of meshes into arbitrary subset hierarchies including materials and mixing
materials. In addition, Silo supports a wide variety of other useful objects to
address various scientific computing application needs. Although the Silo
library is a serial library, it has some key features which enable it to be
applied quite effectively and scalable in parallel.
This package contains a python wrapper for the silo package.
