Default information from saved data files:Unsteady flow

Hello,

I have saved data flies from a unsteady simulation. There are about 20000 data files from this particular simulation. Now I want to extract information like--temperature contours, velocity vectors, fluctuation at a particular point in my domain and others.

To get this information if I have to open all of the data files and get the plots, it will take me forever. Is there any way to automatically extract the information that I need from these saved data files? If there is any script or macro that I can use to do this?

Can anyone help me out with this?

Thanks and Regards, Atul

Thanks for the information umesh. Are you writing these commands repetitively for all of the data files in your journal file?
