Suppose I have the following settings in my controlDict

Code:
writeControl    adjustableRunTime;
writeInterval   0.02;
purgeWrite      3;
Suppose I am at t=5.67, then I will have the time-steps 5.62, 5.64 and 5.66 stored. When time goes beyond 5.68, the output from t=5.62 will get removed. This is expected purgeWrite behavior.

What I want to do now, is using the purgeWrite option, but keeping some more timesteps (or not removing them). Suppose I had a flag
Code:
keepEach  1.0
The expected behavior in the above example, is that I have the following timesteps stored:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5.62, 5.64, 5.66

Any suggestions on how to do this? Is there such a flag, or should I put it as a feature request on the bugtracker?

The purgeWrite code is defined in:/src/OpenFOAM/db/Time/TimeIO.C (318-326)
Code:
        if (writeOK && purgeWrite_)
        {
            previousOutputTimes_.push(timeName());

            while (previousOutputTimes_.size() > purgeWrite_)
            {
                rmDir(objectRegistry::path(previousOutputTimes_.pop()));
            }
        }
This obviously confirms that there is no such flag by default.

With adding a dictionary input and an if-statement in the while loop, this can easily be implemented, I suppose.

Is it possible to compile this into a library, and put it as a library in the controlDict, allowing to add the required flag? My impression is that the answer would be no, because I need to recompile the solver at least. Any hints on library linking is welcome here.

I tried compiling some libmyOpenFOAM and without new changes, I compiled it with myIcoFoam. Now I get a conflict between libOpenFOAM and libmyOpenFOAM.
Quote:
*** glibc detected *** myIcoFoam: double free or corruption (!prev): 0x000000000072fee0 ***
======= Backtrace: =========
/lib64/libc.so.6(+0x75558)[0x7f299f250558]

======= Memory map: ========
Which occurs at the end of the run after completing.

I tried to compile myIcoFoam manually, by stripping the references to lOpenFOAM and src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude, but, without any success until now. Any hints to not use libOpenFOAM.so using wmake?
