OpenFOAM 1.7 installation on Mac
Hi everybody,

I'm trying to install OpenFOAM 1.7.0 on my MacBook Pro 8,1 since days following this guide:

I have done everything till I have trouble when I try to apply the patches for Mac, particularly the patch for the ThirdParty.

At the command:
patch -p1 ‹ThirdParty-1.7-Mac.patch

the response was:
patch: **** Can't find file ‹ : No such file or directory

of course I have checked that the patch is in the specified directory before...
no problem with the same procedure applying the patch to OpenFOAM-1.7.0 directory.

I would be very grateful if someone could help me to resolve this problem...
thanks everybody,
