#391 Error reading jmol generated jvxl file with load



In my ongoing messing around with JVXL files, I need some grids that are quite big. When I load the cube file to generate the isosurface and write the jvxl file (besides some memory issues as reported in the previous bug report), I now realize that I can not read the files as expected.

If I load the attached jvxl file, I get an error message, while the isosurface comment does deal with it properly.
I had planned to combine a bunch of jvxl files into a single one, so I could turn each of the surfaces on and off as needed after doing a load.

I initially started doing the loading (using the load command) of multiple jvxl surfaces in a single file without a problem, but the grid was less than 100 points wide (which I suspect has something to do with it).


PS Here is my output from the console:
$ load H_1s_p.jvxl
script ERROR: Error reading file at line 5:

    this file reads fine in 11.1.46. There was a brief period where some development versions of Jmol were creating bad JVXL files. This I think is fixed.
