1 /* There are a lot of variables we could define. Its too much to put each one on
2  a command-line to macsio's main. We would wind up putting this infromation in
3  some file that we pass to macsio's main anyways. Here are some options...
5  1. Define a large set of *possible* mesh variables and then just pass a check-box
6  table indicating which variables to include in output.
8  2. Write C code for the variables that we define and the compile into MACSio like
9  we do static plugins.
11  3. Same as 2 except handle as dlopen-based plugin. Could have several different
12  sets of variables and command-line argument just picks a set.
14  Note that from an I/O run perspective, biggest issue is just their number, not
15  their particular content. Compression, materials, centering/order, etc. become
16  relevant when stressing a given plugin's features.
18  Evolving variable contents from time-step to time-step may be a useful way to
19  then also drive communication and compute loads in a way that are somewhat
20  representative of real applications.
22  One thing is to 'paint' a variable onto a mesh. Another one is to evolve a
23  variable to the next timestep. Think of a single cycle of a sin wave stretched
24  across the domain. Evolving that might be just varying its amplitude as a
25  function of time; a(t)*sin(x) for example. Maybe a(t) = a0t+t0 would be a
26  linear increase in amplitude with time. Maybe we let a(t)=sin(t) so that
27  amplitude goes up and down with time, etc.
29  All we really need to do is to make it easy to create really interesting
30  functions in C code which we can then evaluate easily from within MACSio
31  as we evolve in time.
