OK, with 1.4 version it seems there is a bug.
CheckYPlus does not work, it requires 'p' file form time-step directory, which in 1.4 version is called 'pd'.

Looks like a simple thing, but I'm not familiar with OpenFOAM code yet, so I leave it for others

BTW. Why version 1.4 seems to be so buggy? Quite often I can read somebody complaints something does not work or is missing.

In that case I would recommend you keep your expert comments to yourself. If you can contribute in a way that is productive please do so, if not then please stop ranting about the code being buggy.

"expert comments" - that's wha
"expert comments" - that's what I "like" about some people.

BTW. I am not ranting, just stating the fact that something doesn't work.

No more comments.

Foam has various pressure defi
Foam has various pressure definitions which makes writing general utilities cumbersome in some instances.

Specifically, p can be absolute pressure, kinematic pressure (p/rho) or pd - pressure without the gravity component.

checkYPlus was written to work with incompressible flow with pressures of the type p/rho only. This has always been the case and is certainly not a bug introduced in 1.4. It will not and has never worked with interFoam, buoyantFoam or other compressible solution fields. Feel free to modify it do do so though.
