Has any one tried to convert mesh generated by Ansys meshing to openfoam? Is there any workaround?

Does anyone know what format the fluent (new version 13, 14 or 14.5) mesh files are written?

I first tried the dos2unix command to ensure that the mesh is in correct format. But then I received an error that the mesh file is binary.

I tried several methods to convert the mesh file (assuming it to be binary) to ascii but nothing seems to work.

Anyone has any idea or suggestion about file conversion in Ubuntu?
