kebi112358 is on a distinguished road
I'm a beginner using OpenFOAM.When I'm learning how to plot graphs as chapter said, I can't get the figure as it showed in figure 2.11(velocity in x-direction vs distance from cavity base) in the user's guide. Do I have to use the sample utility?I don't quite understand what the part about the sample utility said!

akidess will become famous soon enough
You can use the sample utility if you want to make a plot using gnuplot. For a 2D plot in paraview, just use the foamCalc tool to get the components of the vector, and then plot as described in the manual.
