Summary0003434: Foam::sampledSurfaces::plane ctor compiler error
DescriptionWhen declaring the Foam::sampledSurfaces::plane instance with ctor with five arguments (take a look at the Steps to Reproduce), the compiler spits out an error:
error: no matching function for call to ‘Foam::sampledSurfaces::plane::plane(const Foam::word&, const Foam::fvMesh&, const Foam::plane&)
<dir_to_OF>/OpenFOAM-7/src/sampling/lnInclude/sampledPlane.H:100:26: note: no known conversion for argument 3 from ‘const Foam::plane’ to ‘const Foam::sampledSurfaces::plane&’
  100 | const plane& planeDesc,
      | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~^~~~~~~~~
<dir_to_OF>/OpenFOAM-7/src/sampling/lnInclude/sampledPlane.H:56:7: note: candidate: ‘Foam::sampledSurfaces::plane::plane(const Foam::sampledSurfaces::plane&)’
   56 | class plane
      | ^~~~~

Maybe I'm using the sampledSurfaces::plane wrong, bit it seems to me that the const plane& planeDesc argument in the Foam::sampledSurfaces::plane ctor should be of type Foam::plane, since the sampledSurfaces::plane ctor with three arguments, uses cuttingPlane constructor as shown below (copied from sampledPlane.C, lines 66-74), i.e.
    const word& name,
    const polyMesh& mesh,
    const dictionary& dict
    sampledSurface(name, mesh, dict),

I'm by no means an advanced user, but it seems to me that the argument
const plane& planeDesc
should be
const Foam::plane& planeDesc
Steps To Reproduce// Wherever in code, providing that the -I$(LIB_SRC)/sampling/lnInclude and -lsampling are added to EXE_INC to LIB_LIBS in options file, respectively.

#include "plane.H"
#include "sampledPlane.H"
void fun()
const point xyz(-1.5, 0, 0);
const vector dir(0, 1, 0);
const Foam::plane p(xyz, dir);
const word pname = "left";

// the last two arguments, zoneKey and triangulate are word::null and true, respectively
Foam::sampledSurfaces::plane sp(pname, mesh_, p);

On further consideration we have concluded that the constructor in question is in fact in error. It does not function as intended since the rename of the class has caused a clash with the Foam::plane class.

This issue has not surfaced previously because the constructor in question is not used anywhere. I have therefore removed it, and I consider that change to have resolved this report. See
