NAME

       freefoam-foamToVTK - Legacy VTK file format writer.

SYNOPSIS

       freefoam foamToVTK [-noLinks] [-srcDoc] [-noFaceZones] [-nearCellValue] [-noPointValues]
       [-noInternal] [-useTimeName] [-ascii] [-doc] [-surfaceFields] [-mesh <name>] [-help]
       [-cellSet <name>] [-noZero] [-excludePatches <patchNames>] [-time <time>] [-case <dir>]
       [-pointSet <name>] [-latestTime] [-fields <fields>] [-constant] [-parallel] [-faceSet
       <name>] [-allPatches]

DESCRIPTION

       ·   handles volScalar, volVector, pointScalar, pointVector, surfaceScalar fields.

       ·   mesh topo changes.

       ·   both ascii and binary.

       ·   single time step writing.

       ·   write subset only.

       ·   automatic decomposition of cells; polygons on boundary undecomposed since handled by
           vtk.

OPTIONS

       -ascii
           Write VTK data in ASCII format instead of binary.

       -mesh <name>
           Use a different mesh name (instead of -region)

       -fields <fields>
           Convert selected fields only. For example,

                    -fields "( p T U )"

           The quoting is required to avoid shell expansions and to pass the information as a
           single argument.

       -surfaceFields
           Write surfaceScalarFields (e.g., phi)

       -cellSet <name>, -faceSet <name>, -pointSet <name>
           Restrict conversion to the cellSet, faceSet or pointSet.

       -nearCellValue
           Output cell value on patches instead of patch value itself.

       -noInternal
           Do not generate file for mesh, only for patches.

       -noPointValues
           No pointFields.

       -noFaceZones
           No faceZones.

       -noLinks
           (in parallel) do not link processor files to master.

       -allPatches
           Combine all patches into a single file.

       -excludePatches <patchNames>
           Specify patches to exclude. For example,

                    -excludePatches "( inlet_1 inlet_2 )"

           The quoting is required to avoid shell expansions and to pass the information as a
           single argument.

       -useTimeName
           use the time index in the VTK file name instead of the time index

       -case <dir>
           Case directory.

       -noZero
           Ignore time step 0.

       -constant
           Include the constant directory.

       -latestTime
           Only apply to the latest time step.

       -time <time>
           Apply only to specified time.

       -parallel
           Run in parallel.

       -help
           Display help message.

       -doc
           Display Doxygen API documentation page for this application.

       -srcDoc
           Display Doxygen source documentation page for this application.

NOTE

       mesh subset is handled by vtkMesh. Slight inconsistency in interpolation: on the internal
       field it interpolates the whole volfield to the whole-mesh pointField and then selects
       only those values it needs for the subMesh (using the fvMeshSubset cellMap(), pointMap()
       functions). For the patches however it uses the fvMeshSubset.interpolate function to
       directly interpolate the whole-mesh values onto the subset patch.
