I've compiled ParaFOAM with icc with no problems, and have data in the cavity case from the icoFOAM solver. Nevertheless, when I invoke paraFoam -case cavity from the appropriate location:

ParaView loads, and tells me "A reader for cavity.OpenFOAM could not be found. Please choose one:".

I scroll to the bottom and select "OpenFOAM Files". It then fails out with this error message:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::length_error'
what(): basic_string::_S_create
/tmp/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/bin/paraFoam: line 83: 11379 Aborted paraview --data=$caseFile

Any ideas?
