Problem with getdist plots

Post by Ragavendra HV » May 19 2017

I am a novice in CosmoMC and am facing problem with GetDist. I used GetDistGUI to select and plot the chains from a run, but it gives me error titled:
"invalid literal for float(): 0.6013470-153"
I attach the full window of the error display as an image:


I understand that the numbers highlighted in the chain are not of float type, with an 'E' missing; but I could not think of a way to make the getdist code to read it as float.
Also, I could not find any previous instance of this kind in my limited search through this forum.
I would be grateful for any help in resolving this.

Better to fix the chain file you are trying to read. (probably a bug or odd normalization if you have output values of 1e-153).
