freefoam-formatConvert(1) Converts all IOobjects associated with a case into the format specified in the controlDict.


freefoam formatConvert [-help] [-latestTime] [-noZero] [-srcDoc] [-doc] [-time <time>] [-constant] [-parallel] [-case <dir>]


Mainly used to convert binary mesh/field files to ASCII.

Bugs Any zero-size List written binary gets written as 0. When reading the file as a dictionary this is interpreted as a label. This is (usually) not a problem when doing patch fields since these get the uniform, nonuniform prefix. However zone contents are labelLists not labelFields and these go wrong. For now hacked a solution where we detect the keywords in zones and redo the dictionary entries to be labelLists.



Ignore timestep 0.


Include the constant directory.

-time <time>
