[Users] HDF5 3D output separate time files

Hello Hayley,

One file per snapshot with output from all processors is likely not
(easily) possible. Similarly there is currently no code in CarpetIOHDF5
for creating a new file every N output cycles.

You'd have to edit 


(for out3d_vars output). Simplest would be to edit the basefilename
that you can see in line 441:

    ostringstream basefilenamebuf;
    basefilenamebuf << my_out_slice_dir << "/" << alias;
    const string basefilename = basefilenamebuf.str();

as long as you choose a new filename, everything should be fine.
Something like (untested!):

    basefilenamebuf << ".it_" << cctk_iteration

should do the trick (one file per iteration and with the obvious
changes for multiple iterations per file).
