Limitations (quoted from the help text):
read CCM files as written by proSTAR/ccm - does not handle 'interfaces' (couples), cyclics or data - does not handle mesh regions (porosity, solids, ...)
LICENSE WARNING - ccm26ToFoam needs the library libccmio which (quoted from here):
Using the following library, enables the convertor to read the latest starccm+ format (4.4): libccmio.
Download the compressed archive from the above post (awlibccmio), extract the two files, and run the "AllwmakeLibccmio" script. This will download and compile the libccmio library.
Then compile the optional ccm26ToFoam utility with "$FOAM_APP/utilities/mesh/conversion/Optional/Allwmake".
NOTE: ccm26ToFoam in the 1.6 version doesn't compile! You will have to get it from the git 1.6.x version! See here for more information.
The files for ccm26ToFoam have already been fixed in OpenFOAM 1.7. Simply compile the optional ccm26ToFoam utility with "$FOAM_APP/utilities/mesh/conversion/Optional/Allwmake".
