  1. State file (*.pvsm) and relative paths

    As found in http://www.cmake.org/pipermail/paraview/2007-October/006115.html,
    when saving a state file (*.pvsm), it should be possible to have relative path files (with independancy of the directoty syntax / or \ relative to unix or windows platforms)

      • Improve parallelization for multi-processor machines

        Since virtually all computers have at least 2, rather 4 or even more cores, it would be great to be able to utilize them.

        For now, I haven't found a way to to postprocess OpenFOAM data or StarCD data in parallel on one machine and gain a speed-up. (infact, setup via "mpirun -np2 pvserver" decreased performance to 0.5x). I have read that the "not-legacy" VTK reader is parallel, so could there be at least a converter from old-VTK to new VTK? (if the reader is the problem)

        • Writing to Paraview from an external program

          Paraview operates/implements a client-server paradigm. This suggests that it may be possible for an external (e.g. C++ application) to communicate with a running instance of Paraview, by sending it commands (e.g. open legacy VTK file) via the port attached to the server. Such a feature would be ideal for:

          - debugging programs that output VTK data.
          - automatically loading or unloading data to Paraview e.g. at the end of a smilation

            We are working on this feature as well as the ability to linking the ParaView engine with the simulation (aka co-processing or in-situ processing)
