XML data readers will not read file containing nameless data arrays
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
This issue is also present in the devel version.
The XML readers refuse to read any file which has data arrays without the Name attribute. Some VTK filters actually produce data with unnamed arrays. The XML writers on the other hand will actually write a file with such nameless arrays, and will not provide a Name attribute for them, unless they are one of the standard attributes (such as Scalars, etc).
I see three possible solutions:
- Allow readers to read unnamed arrays
- Make writers create names for unnamed arrays
- Create default names for newly created arrays
