kar is on a distinguished road

Recently I've been "playing" with OF quite a lot, but haven't found how to do that thing. For example I would like to write some time dependant, nonlinear C++ function for temperature on boundary. Let x,y be local coordinates on boundary surface, t - time, so I want to use BC T = T(x,y,t). Or T gradient. If local coordinates is a problem, I don't mind writing that function for global ones.
How to do this?

The parabolic-inlet is not time-dependent. He will need a "real" boundary condition.

Have a look at $FOAM_SRC/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived/timeVaryingUniformFixedValue / as a starting point (the parabolic stuff might give you an idea how to implement the spatial part of the function)
Note: I don't use "Friend"-feature on this forum out of principle. Ah. And by the way: I'm not on Facebook either. So don't be offended if I don't accept your invitation/friend request
