XDMF files


I generate some XDMF files ( output.xdmf and output.h5) from some FEniCS codes I wrote, I needed to open them on Paraview (5.6.2 - 64-bit) on my Macbook, I chose load the output.xdmf file and I was prompted to choose one of the following two readers: Xdmf3ReaderS and Xdmf3ReaderT. I have tried both of them and Paraview crushed.

Following are some information I copied from the crush report:

Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread

Exception Type: EXC_CRASH (SIGABRT)
Exception Codes: 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000

Application Specific Information:
terminating with uncaught exception of type XdmfError: xmlReadFile could not read /Volumes/FEA/output.xdmf in XdmfCoreReader::XdmfCoreReaderImpl::openFile
abort() called

Thread 0 Crashed:: Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread

Did I create the XDMF files incorrectly? or was it some issue with my Mac?

Thank you!

Please share your files

Also make sure that this file exists and has readable permissions.

Hello Mathieu,
I am not sure how to share the files as they are over 10 GBs.

Hello Dave
How should I check the permission? I generated the files with my own codes so I didn’t think there could be a permission issue.
