Reading Tecplot *.plt files using TecIO.dll
I desperately need to find a method to read xyz-data from Tecplot plt files. I believe Ive heard rumours that it is possible using TecIO.dll but have not yet seen a code snippet that illustrates how.

I am coding in C and C# but any piece of code in any language would be greatly helpful.

An example can be found in the tecio source file archive dowloaded from tecplot support. It contains two parts the tecio source code and a program called pltview.
Reading the source code of pltview will explain how to do a plt reader.
In the main part of the program just turn on array reading by modifying the following part.
Line 594 change it to
ReportFileInfo(argv[CurFile], TRUE, TRUE);

Best regards
