WriteASC

WriteASC generates an ASCII file containing the information of a Covise object (accepted types are specified in the list of types of the unique input port, see below). You may use this file by way of report or in case you wish to analyse the data with your own tools.

WriteASC_map.png

In this map two WriteASC modules are used to generate reports of data objects constructed by other modules. The first one writes a file for the Unstructured_2D_Data object created by Histogram .

The first lines of this file (/usr/tmp/data2D.asc) is shown below:
