Hi all,

I have some problems when using startTime in openfoam.

1. controlDict

startFrom	      startTime;
startTime	      1800;
stopAt             endTime;
endTime         1801.31;
deltaT             0.01;
writeControl    timeStep;
writeInterval   131;
According to my understanding, the above setting will generate the time directory 1801.31, but the fact is 1801.25 time directory with all necessary files is created, while 1801.31 time directory is also generated but with less files, like missing pointDisplacement, etc.

2. cuttingPlane

        writeControl    timeStep;
        writeInterval   28;
        timeStart	     1801.32;
        timeEnd         1808.00;
In the cuttingPlane function object, I set OF to generate vtk files from timeStart=1801.32, and the interval is 28 time steps (i.e. 0.28), and the timeEnd=1808. So the vtk files should be created at time= [1801.32 : 0.28 : 1807.76], but the fact is [1801.52, 1801. 8, ...].

So is there any way in OF to generate vtk files at specific beginning time with specific writeInterval?
