9.12 Chombo

In FLASH4 we introduced a new Grid implementation that depends on Chombo library (see Section 8.7). An application built with this Grid implementation will include IO/IOMain/chombo by default. No other I/O implementation is compatible with Chombo  Grid implementation. As before, I/O can be excluded from an application using the +noio setup shortcut.

Data files are written in standard Chombo file layout in HDF5 format. The visualization tool VisIt supports Chombo file layout, but other tools, such as fidlr and sfocu, are incompatible with Chombo file layout.
