pointVectorField initialisation with cyclic boundary
 
Hi

I've created a simple mesh with 3 cyclic patches using the createPatch utility as described on the forum. When I come to run the code I have a funny error when creating a pointVectorField. The volVectorFields are created without error.

The error is:

keyword global is undefined in dictionary "...../0/vor::boundaryField"

where vor is the pointVectorField and its boundaryField is defined in (what I assume to be) the usual way:

boundaryField
{
periodicX
{
type cyclic
}

periodicY
{
type cyclic
}

periodicZ
{
type cyclic
}
}


Hopefully this is a simple error and somebody would be kind enough to put me right!

Adding "global" in the decomposed files didn't worked for me. I've got no cyclic patches but moving patches instead so I guess the source of the problem is the same...
