Hello everyone,

I am using the twoPhaseEulerFoam solver. When I view the data in the timestep folders (ie. the alpha folder) the data appears to be in binary, hex, or some other obscure language. Is there a way that the data can be outputted in something viewable, for example numbers like the settlingFoam solver. If someone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
