Hi,

Look at your function call. It seems like you are calling refineMesh with -overwrite as the file name.

What exactly was your function call (with arguments)?

Cheers,
Antimony

Hi,
this is My Allrun script :
Code:
refineMeshByCellSet()
{
   while [ $# -ge 1 ]
   do
      cp system/topoSetDict.$1 system/topoSetDict
      
      if [ -f log.topoSet.$1 ]
      then
         echo "topoSet level $1 already run on $PWD: remove log file to re-run"
      else
         echo "creating cell set for primary zone - $1"
         runApplication topoSet
         mv log.topoSet log.topoSet.$1
      fi

     
      if [ -f log.refineMesh.$1 ]
      then
         echo "refineMesh level $1 already run on $PWD: remove log file to re-run"
      else
         echo "refining primary zone $1"
         runApplication refineMesh -dict -overwrite
         mv log.refineMesh log.refineMesh.$1
      fi
      shift
   done
}

runApplication blockMesh
refineMeshByCellSet 1 2 3 4 
runApplication checkMesh

Hi,

It would seem that the problem stems from the -dict tag. Once you specify the -dict tag, OF expects the location of the dictionary file to follow it. In your case, instead of the location of the dictionary file, there is the -overwrite tag and so OF goes looking for a dictionary file called "-overwrite".
So a solution would be to specify the location of the dictionary file after the -dict tag and then specify the -overwrite tag.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Antimony
