[Gmsh] Interpolating mesh values

To add on to the previous email:
I figured out "2.", and I am able to use the GUI to write out a grid.
My remaining questions are
A :: "1" from prev. email ::
what interpolation kernel/ method is gmsh using?
[I wanted to use an interpolation scheme such that if I specify a
point outside the mesh (which can happen when I spec a regular grid), I
don't want gmsh to extrapolate]
and a newer one :
B :: I noticed that you wrote a code snippet. I'm able to run it by saving
it as .geo/ as well as do the same through the GUI.
But how do I go about batching the following: (i) use Plugin(CutGrid) to
create a new view, (ii) save the points in the new view in a .pos?
I suspect the latter question is something very simple I'm missing, but can
you guide me on it?
Thank you!
