FDTD++ provides two types of output, simulation output and user output. The former type is generated automatically, in order to provide logging and error reports, and the latter is output desired by the user, such as electromagnetic fields, spectra, etc.
Simulation output is generated automatically by FDTD++, for every simulation. Often
There are three streams of simulation output:
- FDTDxx.log: The log file. This file logs details of a given simulation. As this file reports both the materials and parameters set in a simulation, it is often good practice to check this file for consistency.
- FDTDxx.err: The error file. This file logs both errors and warnings. In the case of a simulation crash, this file should be consulted.
- Console: Output directed toward the user. This rarely (never?) occurs in FDTD++.
