Re: [visad] new to visAD

Another way to approach this. First, if you will allow me to remake
your text file into this:

(x,y,z)->p
x,y,z,p
1, 3, 6, 1000
2, 12, 4, 1012
8, 18, 5, 1005
9,4, 7, 990

Then in Jython:

from visad.python.JPythonMethods import *
a = load("test.txt")
dumpTypes(a)

you get:

VisAD MathType analysis
  FunctionType:
  Domain has 3 components:
   0. RealType: x
   0.   Name = x
   1. RealType: y
   1.   Name = y
   2. RealType: z
   2.   Name = z
  Range:
    RealTupleType has 1 components:
     0. RealType: p
     0.   Name = p
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
DataType analysis...
    FlatField of length = 4
    ((x, y, z) -> p)
      Domain has 3 components:
        Irregular3DSet (x, y, z) Length = 4
      Range has 1 components:
        0. FloatSet (p) Dimension = 1
        0. number missing = 0

Is this what's you're after?  (Pardon my use of Jython -- it's just so
much quicker for me.....).
