4.1.7 Automatic Numbering of Files

There are several special characters that you can include in a filename. Using one of these character strings in your filename provides a shortcut for numbering the files based on various parameters (i.e., iteration number, time step, or total number of files saved so far), because you need not enter a new filename each time you save a file. (See also Section  4.3.4 for information about saving and numbering case and data files automatically.)

The default field width for %i, %t, and %n formats is 4. You can change the field width by using %xi, %xt, and %xn in the filename, where x is the preferred field width.
