Python Shell's Trace State fails to create ready-to-use Python script if ExodusIIReader is involved
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
Open test dataset can.ex2 Tools - Python Shell - Trace - Trace State - Save Trace (=> foo.py) pvpython foo.py
=> will raises error messages like vtkExodusFileSeriesReader (0x909f360): No files given. vtkExodusFileSeriesReader (0x909f360): Expecting at least 1 file. Cannot proceed.
It is necessary to remove all three keywords FilePrefix FilePattern XMLFileName from the argument list of the ExodusIIReader call in the python script: Leaving one of them raises an error. Leaving any permutation of two of them raises an error.
Pat confirmed that somehow the pvsm avoids the problem, but not python state.
