Summary0003489: Return writeVolume option to volFieldValue post-processing function
DescriptionIn the commit d27e752 the writeVolume option was removed from volFieldValue post-processing function, but it was handy tool for moving meshes (and it also needed).
Is it possible to return it back?

It is not logical that volFieldValue functionObject also provides mesh geometry writing capability, it would be better that this is provided by a special functionObject dedicated to that purpose.

Follow the advice here
and type:
postProcess -list
You should see the writeCellVolumes function object

Thank you for your immidiate responce!
I'm familiar the writeCellVolumes object, but it just creates volScalarField of the cell volumes. But what if i need to get volume of the whole domain (as function of time)? Or even volume of the cellZone region?
