Keep the parameters & results files after the analysis driver completes


Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Default: file cleanup


If file_save is used, Dakota will not delete the parameters and results files after the function evaluation is completed.

The default behavior is NOT to save these files.

If file_tag is not specified and the saved files would be overwritten by a future evaluation, Dakota renames them after the analysis driver has run by tagging them with the evaluation number.

File saving is most useful when debugging the data communication between Dakota and the simulation.
