The files here are used to run the three Patong Beach validations.
Executing the patong_beach_validation/validate.py program will attempt
to automatically refresh your local validation data files from the
files here. If you don't have an internet connection or you choose
not to supply proxy passwords the validate.py code will attempt to run
the validations if you have the data files locally. So you may run
the validations 'offline' if you download the data files here and put
them into the patong_beach_validation/local_data directory.
To run any of the validations you require the data.tgz file. The
TRIAL, BASIC and FINAL validations require the patong.sww.TRIAL.tgz,
patong.sww.BASIC.tgz and patong.sww.FINAL.tgz files respectively.
validate.py will run whichever validations it has the files for.
The *.digest files are used only by the validate.py refresh process
and do not need to be downloaded before running an 'offline' validation.
Note that a validation is correct only if run on a 64bit machine with a
64bit operating system. Due to differences in mesh generation between
32bit and 64bit machines, validations run on 32bit machines will show
differences between the generated and validated SWW files.
