Dakota writes final results for most methods to the screen (console). This keyword enables experimental support for writing them to disk, as well. By default, they are written in a structured text format to a file named dakota_results.txt. Text format can be explicitly selected using the text sub-keyword. If Dakota was built with HDF5 enabled, the sub-keyword hdf5 causes results to be written in HDF5 format, as well.

The name of the results file can be changed using the results_output_file keyword.

Text output eventually will be deprecated, and HDF5 will be enabled in all distributed builds of Dakota. The layout of the HDF5 file is described in the Dakota HDF5 Output section of this manual. The contents, organization, and format of results files are all under active development and are subject to change.
