argument vector
 
Hello,

I've a problem with predefining two points over commandline arguments

If I use (like in transformPoints) this option:
argList::validOptions.insert("scale", "vector");
=> it is an option, the user can use it but mustn't

What I want to have is something like
argList::validArgs.append("P1z");

With this version the user has to support the point but at the end I'm not able to convert it to a vector in openfoam or at least 3 digits.

Has anybody an idea?

Thanks & best Regards,
Peter

Your on the right track. Just have a look at the source of a utility that needs additional arguments and everything should be clear (for instance rotateMesh, that even reads vector)

yeah, that IStreamString was that what I was looking for.

Thx and have a good evening
