Extra Attributes in h5 short summary files

Post by ehsan » Mon Aug 19, 2013 4:26 am

Hello Rich,
I like to propose that the short summary files have extra attributes to pass more global properties of the input model like Teff, log_g, log_L, X_cent, Y_cent, X_surf, Y_surf, v_rot, omega/omega_crit, etc. The list can be exhaustive, while it will be very handy to retrieve information from the equilibrium model directly from the short summary files.

Best regards.
Ehsan.

That's an interesting idea, but often these data aren't themselves available in the input stellar model file. As a compromise, how about having the option of storing the input model filename in the summary file -- that way, a program reading the summary data can easily access the input model also.

cheers,

Rich
