I want to set up some standard C++ type vectors in OpenFoam but OpenFoam has defined its own type of a vector.

How do I use the stadard C++ definitions to set up a vector of a type which I have defined?

Something like vector<mystructure> variableName;

and use the standard C++ methods on this variable.

There's nothing stopping you from using STL vectors - that's why namespaces were invented in the first place.

The vector class in OpenFOAM is defined in the 'Foam' namespace, so it's actually a Foam::vector class. To use the STL version, simply use std::vector, or even plain ::vector.

There are simpler solutions for sure, but if anything else fails, just loop over the scalarList and set the particular element of the std::vector to the respective element of scalarList.

Thank you!

Yes, because they in the different namespace, we can use std::vector<double> to substitute scalarList.
