This might be a silly question.

Just curious about the meaning of this fantastic building tool.


What is the meaning of 'w' in 'wmake'?

Does it mean that "WellerMake"?

or "wyldckatMake"?

I do believe there is a meaning under this character.

Thanks for sharing if you know this point.

Yup, WellerMake https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenFOAM

"Die Entwicklung von FOAM "Field Operation And Manipulation" wurde um 1989 von Henry Weller am Imperial College London in der Forschungsgruppe von Professor A.D. Gosman begonnen. Doktoranden wie Hrvoje Jasak aus der Forschungsgruppe nutzten und erweiterten FOAM im Rahmen ihrer Doktorarbeit [10]. Weller, Jasak und weitere Mitglieder aus der Forschungsgruppe wie Greenshields und Janssens gründeten 2000 die Firma Nabla Ltd. um FOAM kommerziell anzubieten. 2004 wurde die Firma aufgelöst, und die Entwickler Weller (OpenCFD Ltd.) und Jasak (Wikki Ltd.) arbeiteten fortan getrennt an dem nun unter der GNU General Public Licence stehenden "OpenFOAM" weiter."
