GIDpost is a set of functions (library) for writing postprocess results for GiD in ASCII or binary format.

  • GiD version 6.1.4b or higher is required to read the ASCII postprocess files.
  • GiD version 7.2 or higher is required to read the binaries postprocess files.

The library was implemented taking into account two of the must widely used development environments: C/C++ and FORTRAN.
