Redecorate Transient Variable

This Jupyter Notebook shows how to redecorate a transient variable that became a numpy array

The CDAT software was developed by LLNL. This tutorial was written by Charles Doutriaux. This work was performed under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Energy by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory under Contract DE-AC52-07NA27344.
