       options and write formats.

           set output format, choice of

           ·    xmgr

           ·    jplot

           ·    gnuplot

           ·    raw

           surface output format, choice of

           ·    null : suppress output

           ·    foamFile : separate points, faces and values file

           ·    dx : DX scalar or vector format

           ·    vtk : VTK ascii format

           ·    raw : x y z value format for use with e.g. gnuplot splot.

           ·    obj : Wavefron stl. Does not contain values!

           ·    stl : ascii stl. Does not contain values!

           interpolation scheme, choice of

           ·    cell : use cell-centre value; constant over cells (default)

           ·    cellPoint : use cell-centre and vertex values

           ·    cellPointFace : use cell-centre, vertex and face values. \n

                1. vertex values determined from neighbouring cell-centre values

                2. face values determined using the current face interpolation scheme for the
                   field (linear, limitedLinear, etc.)

           list of fields to sample

           list of sets to sample, choice of

           ·    uniform : evenly distributed points on line

           ·    face : one point per face intersection

           ·    midPoint : one point per cell, inbetween two face intersections

           ·    midPointAndFace : combination of face and midPoint

           ·    curve : specified points, not nessecary on line, uses tracking

           ·    cloud : specified points, uses findCell

           Option axis: how to write point coordinate. Choice of

           ·    x/y/z: x/y/z coordinate only

           ·    xyz: three columns (probably does not make sense for anything but raw)

           ·    distance: distance from start of sampling line (if uses line) or distance from
               first specified sampling point

           Type specific options:

           ·    uniform, face, midPoint, midPointAndFace : start and end coordinate

           ·    uniform: extra number of sampling points

           ·    curve, cloud: list of coordinates

           list of surfaces to sample, choice of

           ·    plane : values on plane defined by point, normal.

           ·    patch : values on patch.


           Do not sample the 0 directory.

       -case <dir>
           Path to the case directory. Defaults to the current working directory.

           Run in parallel.

           Only sample the latest time directory.

       -time <time>
           Only sample the time directory.

           Include the constant directory.

           Display help message.
