This script is meant to act as a Catalyst instrumented simulation code.
Instead of actually computing values though it just reads in files that
are passed in through the command line and sets that up to act like
it's coming in as simulation computed values. The script must be run
with pvbatch with the following arguments:
it's coming in as simulation computed values.
This script must be run with pvbatch, either in serial or in parallel.
The arguments are as follows :
* -sym if run with more than a single MPI process so that pvbatch will
have all processes run the script.
* a list of files in quotes (wildcards are acceptable) but these are
treated as a single argument to the script.
* a list of Catalyst Python scripts.
An example of how to use this script would be:
mpirun -np 5 <path>/pvbatch -sym "input_*.pvtu"
eg, in serial :
<path>/pvbatch "temporalFile.ex2"
eg, in parallel
mpirun -np 5 <path>/pvbatch -sym "input_*.pvtu"
This script currently only handles a single channel. It will try to find
an appropriate reader for the list of filenames and loop through the timesteps.
