Title: Ioss IO Subsystem

The Ioss is a database-independent package for providing an object-oriented, abstract interface to IO capabilities for a finite element application; and concrete database interfaces which provided input and/or output to exodusII, xdmf, generated, and heartbeat database formats. The Ioss provides an object-oriented C++-based IO interface for a finite element application code. The application code can perform all IO operations through the Ioss interface which is typically at a higher abstraction level than the concrete database formats. The Ioss then performs the needed operations to translate the finite element data to the specific format required by the concrete database implementations. The Ioss currently supports interfaces to exodusII, xdmf, generated, and heartbeat formats, but additional formats can be easily added.
