Delimited Text

Purpose

The main advantage of having this reader and using it over the default delimited text reader is that we can specify to use tab (\t) delimiters and that we deliver to the users of this repo a delimited text reader that they manipulate to work for their file format needs.

About this Reader

This reader will take in any delimited text file and make a vtkTable from it. This is not much different than the default .txt or .csv reader in ParaView, however it gives us room to use our own extensions and a little more flexibility in the structure of the files we import.

Down the Pipeline

Notes:

This reader base has also been extended to DelimitedPointsReaderBase for readers that handled delimited ASCCI text and have vtkPolyData output.
