Hi, Is it possible to commu

Is it possible to communicate a scalar field (say, surfaceScalarField) from one processor to other processor?? Does the MPI commands (say, MPI_Send, MPI_Receive) in OpenFOAM are overloaded to recognize scalar fields as the data type??
Any information on the above would be highly appreciated.

Find some usage of OPstream/IP
Find some usage of OPstream/IPstream. Is a stream so you can use '<<' to transfer a scalarField (probably not a surfaceScalarField).
