Dear all,

I am looking for a way to include parameters while setSet is running.

I execute the following command:
Code:
setSet -batch setSetDict
whereby the setSetDict file contains:
Code:
#include "../_globaleParameter/globPars" 
cellZoneSet rotor new cylinderToCell (-1 0 1) (1 0 -1) $dRot
and the globPars file contains
Code:
#inputMode merge
dRot   70;
I got the following error message:
Code:

wrong token type - expected Scalar, found on line 0 the word '$dRot'

    Usage: cylinderToCell (p1X p1Y p1Z) (p2X p2Y p2Z) radius

    Select all cells with cell centre within bounding cylinder


End
In earlier versions the command cellSet (or faceSet) was used and it was never a problem to include parameters in cellSetDicts. Has anybody a solutions for that problem?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers
Ben

Greetings Ben,

setSet works as a batch/script application, that is why you can't #include stuff in each batch file.
The closest application that now exists with similar functionality is topoSet.

If you still want to use setSet, then you'll need a middle step and change the way you define the values. For example:
  1. In "globPars":
    Code:
    dRot=70
  2. The file "setSetDict" you have is renamed to "setSetDict.template".
  3. In a shell script named "setIt.sh", have something like this:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    source globPars
    rm setSetDict
    cat "setSetDict.template" | while read line; do
      eval echo $line >> setSetDict
    done
    setSet -batch setSetDict
    I haven't tested this, but it should work.
Best regards,
Bruno

Hey Bruno,

thanks a lot, topoSet is exactly that what I looked for. Forget setSet ;-)

Cheers
Ben
