Any particular reason DtFixedFile is not in SI units?


Looking at the CaseTemplate.xml I found this variable:

<parameter key="DtFixedFile" value="NONE" comment="Dt values are loaded from file. Use NONE to disable (default=disabled)" units_comment="milliseconds (ms)" />

I have never used it, but stumbled upon it being in milliseconds insteads of the usual seconds. Just for curiosity is there any particular reason for this?

The only reason I can think of is to avoid writing 0.001 seconds, 1 ms might look a bit prettier in a text file.

Kind regards

    After checking this with @jmdalonso, and he implemented in that way to keep precision since those values are really small
