I've been using gmsh for a few months now and am a big fan.
I've built a new FV solver that uses the gmsh datafile format for output and storage/reuse purposes (will be released soon under the GNU GPL).
As well as spatially varying data, I want to include scalar, vector and tensor values that have no spatial location in this file. I've been using the following $Data/$EndData statements in the files to do this, for example for a scalar:
gmsh doesn't complain about these statements. The integer tags are the same as for other kinds of data - timestep, number of components (1, 3 or 9), number of data statements (=1).
Are you interested in incorporating something like this into the file specification? Do you have plans to be able to handle non-spatial data in gmsh?
