ERROR MESSAGE: line 1: parse error
Hellow Fluent users, I'm new in this forum as I'm new to FLUENT also.

I'm trying to understand the UDFs function, so I tryed the manual and it work fine until I tryed to interprete the simple function listed in the example of the manual.

So I runned to the internet to try to find an answer to my existential doubt "error in the line 1: parse error". What would be that error if I just copied exactly the same as in the manual ? And then I saw that this error is a commom error at the begging.

I would like to post here what I've done to fix this error.

1) I set the environment variable through the Start -> Programs -> Fluent.Inc -> Fluent 6.2.16 -> Set Environment (C:\Fluent.Inc\ntbin\ntx86\setenv.exe)

2) As I was running my case files and my UDF.c function in another folder I checked if the PATH to the case and to the UDF.c function was the SAME and WITHOUT ANY SPACE.

After doing this I could interpret the function without any error.

I hope that this note can help any other begginer as helped me.

Best Regards,

Re: ERROR MESSAGE: line 1: parse error
Hey Man, May be you have entered the incorrect directory in the adreess of the file. For example your udf file is c:/ff/abc.c. You add it in intrepret window. If you see in the window the "c:/ff/abc.c" you must delete the "c:/ff/" and only see the file name in the window"abc.c". I hope that works for you. Best Regards, Farid,
