New file *.post.lst can be read into GiD, postprocess. This file is automatically read when the user works in a GiD project and changes from pre to postprocess.

This file can also be read with File-->Open

The file contains a list of the files to be read by the postprocess:

  • The first line should contain one of these words:
  • Single: just a single file ( two for ascii files: one for mesh and another for results) is provided to be read;
  • Merge: several filenames are provided, one filename per line, which are to be merged inside GiD, for instance when the files come from a domain decomposed simulation;
  • Multiple: several filenames are provided, one filename per line, which are read in GiD, for instance if they belong to a DEM simulation, or FEM simulation with mesh refinement;
  • next lines: the mesh and results files to be read, with one filename per line;
  • following the postprocess mesh and result files, a list of graphs filenames can be provided so that GiD reads them too; fraphs files have the extension .grf;
  • comment lines begin with the # character and blank lines are also admited;
  • file names may have absolute path names or relative to the list file location;
