Eleonora -- there are several graphical output formats that output data in 
clear text and that could pretty easily be processed into xyz-type data. An 
example is the gnuplot format.

There are other possibilities, but before trying to describe them, let me ask 
why you need this format? Outputting the *entire* solution in xyz format only 
makes sense if you want to visualize it (because it's *so* much data) -- for 
which there are of course much better formats than just xyz. On the other 
hand, if you are really only interested in the solution at *some* points, then 
maybe you want to use the 'point value' postprocessor?
