Dear cfd-online members,

I'm trying to implement an UDF that uses the C_FACE_LOOP macro (to loop over the faces of a cell) in very basic implementation that corresponds to examples in the Fluent Manual. However, while interpreting this udf, an error is returned:

Error: C:\test\test1.c: line 20: non-integer subscript expression: unsigned char.

The C_FACE_LOOP statement is at line 20. The same problem occurs when I try to call the C_NFACES macro instead of C_FACE_LOOP.

Here is the most basic implementation to reproduce the error:

#include "udf.h"
 Domain *d;
 Thread *t;
 cell_t c;
 int count = 0;
 d = Get_Domain(1);
   count = C_NFACES(c,t); 
I tried this with Fluent V12.1, on both 32 bit and 64 bit versions, always in serial 2d dp mode.

This problem seems to correspond to . However, the proposed correct implementation there corresponds to the above and doesn't bring a solution.

Does anyone have a possible explanation for this. Or can you reproduce this error?

Many thanks in advance!

put curly brackets after begin_c_loop and before end_c_loop. And try to compile the UDF, not to interpret
