Default Trouble getting current temperature in a UDF

I'm trying to write a UDF that will apply a new temperature to a wall at each time step. However, I keep getting an error message whenever I attempt to use F_T(f,t) or C_T(c,t). Here is my UDF:

DEFINE_PROFILE(WALL_NomOps,thread,i)
{
face_t f;
float t;
real current_temp;
begin_f_loop(f,thread)
{
t=N_TIME;
current_temp= F_T(f,t);
F_PROFILE(f,thread,i)=(4.19778032257033*pow(10,-15))*pow(t,6)+(-3.07012244075472*pow(10,-11))*pow(t,5)+(9.33165359014658*pow(10,-08))*pow(t,4)+(-0.000150853451771018)*pow(t,3)+(0.136765032525550) *pow(t,2)+(-65.9156858075105)*t+13191.0819218154+current_temp;
}
end_f_loop(f,thread)
}

I keep getting the error:

"invalid type conversion: float -> pointer to char."

Does anyone know what this error message means and how to fix it?

Thanks!

Replace the 'float' with 'real'

In addition, replace 't' with 'T'.
At the begining of your UDF, the t is a thread not a temperature subsequent yet. This will clash.
