alanaj5 is on a distinguished road

I was wondering if someone could help me.
I've completed an OpenFOAM simulation and have generated slices and isosurfaces. I'd like to view them and step through them in paraFoam. Currently they're all in separate folders corresponding to the relevant timesteps. A colleague of mine has managed it, but doesn't remember how. It looks to be a file extraction and renaming exercise such that,




Is it a renaming exercise? Is there a script out there for doing this?

Thanks for your help,
