Hi! One problem I encounter
One problem I encounter frequently is that the options -time/-latestTime only let me specify either all or one time-step. This is sometimes quite inconvenient (for instance a reconstructPar of a case of which one half has already been reconstructed only gives me the possibility to reconstruct the first half of the timesteps anew or reconstruct one time-step at a time; for utilities like sample that remove old data when being called this is also quite annoying if you want to sample only two time-steps out of 100)
I thought it would be nice to have an option -times that gives the possibility to specifie multiple times:
or specify a range
or an open range
or only ever 2 seconds
or only every 5th time-step in the range
or a combination
What do you think?
Actually I did an example implementation. It's a bit clumsy because I tried not to modify the application-sources and did not want to modify kernel-classes, but it works alright and as far as I can tell it does not break compatibility with the old options. I'll append it as a patch.
Yes I totally agree and a more
Yes I totally agree and a more general time and time-range selection scheme has already been implemented which will be in included in the next release.
Excuse me for being a bit slow
Excuse me for being a bit slow-witted. That would be what the point "Extended time command line options." in the 1.5 Release-Notes is referring to, wouldn't it? My problem is, that I can't see how to select such a thing with the stock utilities (reconstructPar/checkMesh), I didn't find any reference in the documentation and in the source ($FOAM_SRC/OpenFOAM/include/addTime*.H etc would be the place to look at, wouldn't it?).
Did I miss something or is it possible that that feature got stuck in git somewhere and simply isn't in the release?
Hi Bernhard, I'm not at my
I'm not at my desk at the moment, but take a look at the timeSelector class (I think), it is used in some of the utils like Mach etc.
Hi Mark! Thanks. Didn't see
Thanks. Didn't see that.
As a repentance I wrote this little page on the Wiki for all those who don't want to look it up in the source:
Thanks for those tips Bernhard
