Visualizing output

Since athena1.0 solves the equations in one-dimension, visualizing the data generated by the code is particularily simple as only 1D graphs are needed. Rudimentary scripts for several different graphics packages are supplied with the source code; future versions will incorporate much more sophisticated visualization tools. The following subsections describe useful visualization packages for athena1.0 data files (the discussion assumes the code has already been run to produce output).
