assert is on a distinguished road
When I run 'sonicFoam' I get the error:

Code:
cannot find file MyFolder/constant/boundaryData/outlet/points at line 0.
I checked my parameter files for 'outlet/points' and other clues that an additional file is needed. Googling supplied me no additional hints either, so I hope it is a too-easy-to-put-online question.

Can someone help me out? Thanks!

Below I post the full error message, followed by files I think are most relevant:

assert is on a distinguished road
I did notice that the file called 'p' needed two files.

I did assume that the error message would give the name of the missing file. This was incorrect. The error message needed to be:

Code:
Could not find files 'pIn' and 'pOut'
I hope this will once be corrected.


## 'p'

Code:
boundaryField
{
  inlet
  {
    type timeVaryingMappedFixedValue;
    setAverage 1;
    fileName "pIn";
    outOfBounds clamp;
  }
 
  outlet
  {
    type timeVaryingMappedFixedValue;
    setAverage 1;
    fileName "pOut";
    outOfBounds clamp;
  }  
  [...]
}
