Hi list,
I just got the ok from my boss to post my gmsh wrapper. Please find
attached two python files, one just contains a class for a simple ASCII
progress bar which I found somewhere on the web, the other contains my
wrapper. It's quite simple and probably doesn't work for other setups
however it is a starting point. At the end it has a simple test
demonstrating how you can use the function. It would be nice to write a
python class which queries the gmsh mesh files properly.
Let me know if you have any questions.
