Hi all,

what is the best way if I want to restart the simulation but I have new BC types and values? mapping or can I change it in the results file? I have 15M cells so opening a result file is not so straightforward :P

Best,

Hi.

As you said either you map or you use some clever sed/regex that does search and replace in the result files.

Sed would probably be faster since mapping 15M cells can take quite some time.

Best

Hi,

the "changeDictionary" utility with an appropriate changeDictionaryDict might be a good choice, too.

Thank you all! I'll have a look at the changeDictionary utility!

Best regards,
