Hey there Foamers, I have a question that pertains to runTime. For example, the following code: runTime.graphFormat();

It looks as though runTime is an object. So, is it an object, and if so of what class. I looked into doxygen but did not find much on runTime. Help Help

Search for createTime.H - that has the constructor for runTime. It is a Time object, and is also the master of the objectRegistry. See

Time is so large, they've managed to find convenient places to chop it up - it inherits a number of objects, all of which are exclusive to Time. TimePaths holds file name paths, TimeState holds the current value and the deltaT. And so forth.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 11:15.
