Hi Bisi,

I suggest reading through the documentation on MESA's output:


For the `20M_pre_ms_to_core_collapse` test case, you can edit the `history_columns.list` file that's already there.  Uncomment column names that you don't want; comment column names that you do.

In general, if `history_columns.list` isn't already in your working directory, you can copy it from `$MESA_DIR/star/defaults/history_columns.list` or set the `history_columns_file` control in `&star_job` to point to a non-standard location.


You may also want to change the `history_interval` control in `&controls` to write data more often.
