[tag] type

Supported output types are "VTK" and "XDMF".

For the "VTK" type a .pvd file referencing each time step, which is stored in a .vtu file is written. For the "XDMF" type all time steps are written to a .h5 HDF5 file and a .xdmf file references the actual data in the .h5 file. Both, the .pvd and the .xdmf files can be loaded by Paraview and other VTK based post-processing tools.
