Problem editing files when running in parallel
When I run a case in parallel to time xx and the try to open the processorx/xx/U file the internalField values are not translated correctly (using cat,nano,vim) or character coding cannot be detected (in gedit).
And if I try to edit the "healthy" part of the file, something goes wrong.

This is not happening when i run in serial mode.

I need to be able to edit these files to change e.g. inlet velocity after some time (?)

hey Landman,

What if you try changing writeFormat? Is it set to ascii?

Thank you! My mistake. I should have thought of that.
