Default Multiplication of two volVectorField

I'm new to OpenFOAM and want to access the volVectorField U. It's not a problem to scale it by a scalar, simply by writing

volVectorField scaledU = scalar * U.
The Problem is that I need to scale every component of U by it's own value. I need to multiply the vector field U by another vectorField.

volVectorField S = [(s11, s12, s13), (s21,s22,s33),...]
volVectorField scaledU = [(s11*U11,s12*U12,s13*U13(), (s21*U21,s22*U22,s23*U23(),...]
Does anyone have a hint how i could realize this?

Sorry, this post was too early.

The Programmers Guide says that the function "scale(a, b)" should be used. Sadly the guide is not up to date at this point for a long time. The function that should be used is

cmptMultiply(a, b)
