Summary0002568: paraFoam -builtin reader can not interpret new position definition (barycentric tracking) for particles
DescriptionUsing paraFoam with the -builtin reader fails to postprocess lagrangian particles. I obtained the following error message:

ERROR: In /opt/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-dev/ParaView-5.0.1/VTK/IO/Geometry/vtkOpenFOAMReader.cxx, line 7284
vtkOpenFOAMReaderPrivate (0x253d5d0): Error reading line 20 of /home/horacio/OpenFOAM/Repositorio/haguerre-dev/haguerre-dev/run/tutorials/lagrangian/DPMFoam/Goldschmidt/processor2/0.0008/lagrangian/kinematicCloud/positions: Expected punctuation token ')', found 0

It seems as the reader is expecting the old position definition for particles instead of the new based in barycentric coordinates.

On the other hand, I have no problems with paraFoam.
Steps To ReproduceI obtained this issue when running the Goldschmidt tutorial case.

mpirun -np 6 DPMFoam -parallel
paraFoam -builtin

Then paraFoam -builtin crashes when a time instance with particles is selected.
Additional InformationOpenFOAM version: -dev installed from repository

That is correct, you will need to report this problem to the maintainers of the "builtin" reader.

We develop and maintain the reader provided with OpenFOAM to be completely consistent with the OpenFOAM IO system by linking it directly to the OpenFOAM libraries and recomend that you use it.
