Description:
When other writers than "raw" (for example "vtk") are selected in the sampleSurfaceDict, the program stops and complains that "raw" is the only possible selection (i.e. it presents a list of possible writers, that only contains "raw").

The problem seems to be, that there are no vtk-, dx- and so on writers defined for the types "SphericalTensor" and "SymmTensor"

When all parts concerning volSphericalTensorField and volSymmTensorField are commented out in sampleSurface.C, all works fine.

Solver/Application:
sampleSurface

Source file:

Testcase:


Platform:

Version:
OpenFOAM-1.4 (also 1.4.1)

Are you sure this doesn't work in 1.4.1, I implemented all the writers for all the field types in that version but I only performed basic testing.

Hello Henry,

I am still working with 1.4 but I tried to replace the sampleSurface-1.4 by the one from 1.4.1 and compiled that. Both versions behaved pretty much the same.

But maybe I messed up something. I will check it again when I find some time and report again.

Best regards, Hannes

Hi Hannes,

If you are back-porting the utility to 1.4, be sure that you grab all the sub-directories too (especially surfaceWriters!).
