decomposerPar Warning

I have successfully compiled OpenFOAM ext1.6. I get the following error when I run decomposePar. The simulation runs fine, it is converging and all is fine. I am just curious if the warning should be addressed?

FOAM Warning :
From function IOstream::compressionEnum(const word&)
in file db/IOstreams/IOstreams/IOstream.C at line 75
bad compression specifier 'off', using 'uncompressed'

Quick question: what does the file "system/controlDict" contain? October 30, 2013 18:43

Thanks, I had the writeCompression option as:

writeCompression off

instead it should be

writeCompression uncompressed
