 Add a skipPattern to skip certain lines

visad/data/text/TextAdapter.java  revision 1.47  date: 2009/08/18

 do a sanity check on the return using MAXNUMPARM

visad/python/JPythonMethods.java  revision 1.74  date: 2009/08/17
18:06:08   author: tomw
 Updated signatures for mask() method to use FieldImpl.  Data sig kept, but
 requires a FieldImpl (or FlatField) since that's the only thing that
makes sense anyway.  Updated method for getMaxMin() to allow for
FieldImpl.  Update method of rescale to allow for FieldImpl....and NOT
to overwrite input field.

visad/data/text/TextAdapter.java  revision 1.46  date: 2009/08/03
16:37:05   author: donm
 If there are no samples to read, catch it and throw an Exception

2009/07/23 17:19:48   author: jeffmc
 Change the time step rendering loop to use the ThreadManager. This
should not affect any other visad code because the thread manager by
default runs the threads sequentially (famous last words)

17:18:20   author: jeffmc
