read_field_coordinates


Add context to data: flag to indicate that field coordinates should be read

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): none

Description

Field coordinates specify independent variables (e.g. spatial or temporal coordinates) upon which the field depends. For example, the voltage level above might be a function of time, so time is the field coordinate. If the user has field coordinates to read, they need to specify read_field_coordinates. The field coordinates will then be read from a file named response_descriptor.coords, where response_descriptor is the user-provided descriptor for the field response. The number of columns in the coords file should be equal to the number of field coordinates.
