Hello Everybody,

I am trying to write subDict inside a dictionary. I know how to setup a dictionary but dont know how to add a subDict inside the dictionary.

Say for example, i want to write RASProperties file as below.

RASModel laminar;
turbulence off;

beta = 0.04;

for declaring dictionary one do as follows.

IOdictionary RASProperties(IOobject("RASProperties",runTime.con stant(),mesh,IOobject::NO_READ,IOobject::AUTO_WRIT E));


this write the file.

I did till here...

But i am not getting how to add following section inside this same dictionary.

beta = 0.04;

Please let me know how to add subDict inside a IOdictionary.

Thanks a lot in advance

Hi Nadeem

I assume you mean that you want to figure out how to access a sub-dictionary? Just apply the subDict method of, e.g.

dictionary mySubDict(RASProperties.subDict("subDictName"));

Good luck

Thanks a lot for the reply.

Well, I know how to read, but i wanted to add a directory inside another directory. but now i got it, how to do it. its like following.

IOdictionary dict1;
IOdictionary dict2;




output will be...

x x_value;
y y_value;

z z_value;

I hope it works if someone else needs it...

Best Regards,
