Summary0015925: can't parse valid Float64 ASCII values
DescriptionUsing Paraview 5.0.0-RC3 binary distribution for Mac,
but also reproduced on Linux with older Paraview versions.
The VTK UnstructuredGrid XML Parser fails to read ASCII DataArrays containing values like this:


Even when we explicitly state type="Float64". The current workaround is to cast our "double" values to "float" before output. A stand-alone C++ program using "std::cin >> float" accepts these values just fine. Actually, this may have more to do with that value being a sub-normal double precision value. I've confirmed that Paraview accepts the file if the values are changed to this:


Which is just above the sub-normal cutoff.

An example UnstructuredGrid file is attached.
Steps To ReproduceOpen the attached file with Paraview.
TagsNo tags attached.
