I have a question about some of the tools in the Pizza.py package, but am hesitant to sign up for the mailing list because it appears to have been over-run by spambots. So, I will post it here and hope someone can answer it:
I am working with some fairly large dump files, and want to convert the some parts of the dump file to ensight format (i.e. particular snapshots). As far as I can tell, the docs say basically to read each step in sequence with next(), delete it if not needed, and if a desired step, process it. I was hoping there may be a more streamlined way to do this (such as a method to read a particular timestep without needing to read the others first), as this will be rather inefficient if I wish to say visualize a particular step which is not early in the dump file.
My hack around this is to do some fancy grepping, and pre-process the dump file, but I was hoping there is a way to do this within Pizza - is that possible?
