lange June 24, 2005 10:41

My running dir is ~/OpenFoam/l
My running dir is ~/OpenFoam/lange-1.1/run

in this dir is a subdir /tutorials ,which I has copied from ~/OpenFoam/OpenFoam-1.1/tutorials.

With FoamX I only can create a Case in my home dir or in the Tutorial subdir's, where are the Tutorials Cases located.

When I copy a Tut-Case directly into my running or anywhere-else-dir FoamX could not find this case.

So my Questions are:

How can I create a case in ~/OpenFoam/lange-1.1/run?


How can I copy a Case, as template for further modifications into another dir, while it's still found by FoamX?

Thanx for all reader's, especially for those who have an answer.

FoamX only looks in those dire
FoamX only looks in those directories it is told to look in. This is done through a configuation file.

Have a look through the user manual. (section 5.5 to be precise)
