Hi everybody,

I am unable to figure out how to use the -fields option of foamToVTK, to specify the fields I want to have converted. Tried a lot, just keeps telling me

" FOAM FATAL IO ERROR : incorrect first token, expected <int> or '(', ..."

Any hints?

Thank you!

You might try with a wordList,
-fields "(foo bar baz)"

You'll need the quotes to avoid annoying the shell and to group as a single argument.
