Print the grid and elements to a user-specified file in an binary format. This tends to create smaller .goof files. The format of the binary file is described in Section 6.3.2.

binary arguments

The name of the binary .goof file to be written. This file can be subsequently compressed and read in compressed format, such as gzip. Default: binary.goof

Whether or not the local stiffness matrix for each element is saved in the data file. Computing the local stiffness matrices consumes a large fraction of the time spent while loading a data file, so saving the matrices significantly speeds up loading the file. However, it also significantly increases the file size. Default: false
