Hey,

it always annoyed me, that the foamToVTK converter output files with the "timeLabel", so 0,1,2,3..., instead of the "timeName", so one could tell what time it actually is.

I changed that in the foamToVTK.C and attached it below.

foamToVTK.C.gz

I wonder why i didn't do it well before.

Because to have automatic time animation the file names have to end in an _ddd extension? (where ddd is an integer)

ahh, okay, then put both in. First timeName and then timeLabel. A bit long but does make live easier
