xml files related to exodus files crashing
When we have an exodus dataset, ParaView is looking for a matching .xls file. This is for old Sandia functionality that is deprecated. Please remove the code that was reading .xls files in the exodus reader.
Here is how to test:
- Copy can.exo, and the attached can.xml files, into a test directory.
- Linux, 5.4.1 (or master), local server. YOU MUST start paraview in this directory, such as /home/alan/ParaView/5.4.1/bin/paraview.
- Try to open the can.exo dataset.
It will go down screaming from an assert. (Assert is at vtkExodusIIReaderParser.cxx:125.)
This is a showstopper for Sandia.
