decomposed case reader in Paraview

I would like to read decomposed cases into Paraview without reconstructing it so I would to use Takuya Oshima's OF reader. PV 3.8.1 I was built and installed along with OF 1.6-ext. My question:
1) Does Takuya's reader that comes with PV >= 3.8 automatically work with decomposed cases or does it still need to be specially built following his wiki instructions (http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Co...r_for_ParaView)?
OR more straightfoward
1) Can anyone confirm if his reader works with decomposed cases from the PV built and installed with OF 1.6-ext?
Sorry for the confusion :-/

I don't know if this works with OpenFOAM 1.6, but you could try the command
You will get the option to chose whether you want to read the reconstructed or decomposed case. Also, it will read your case files 3 times faster than it would without the -builtin option.
Alternatively, you can edit paraFoam and replace all entries reading .OpenFOAM with .foam

If you download the latest Paraview binary from http://www.paraview.org/paraview/res.../software.html, then this can open decomposed OpenFOAM cases. No compilation required.
Just create an empty ".foam" file in your case directory and then open this in paraview and it will open your case.
The command "touch case.foam" will create an empty file called "case.foam".
Hope it helps,
