A paraview execution error
why does this error occure?

ehsan@Ehsan-com:~/Desktop/shock tube and backwars/backward_step_U_groovyBC$ paraFoam
created temporary 'backward_step_U_groovyBC.OpenFOAM'
fileName::stripInvalid() called for invalid fileName /home/ehsan/Desktop/shocktubeandbackwars/backward_step_U_groovyBC/backward_step_U_groovyBC.OpenFOAM
    For debug level (= 2) > 1 this is considered fatal

You didn't look carefully enough at this ;) - compare:

~/Desktop/shock tube and backwars/backward_step_U_groovyBC

Notice something missing?

After so much time using OpenFOAM, don't you know it is allergic to spaces in names? :D

The allergic reaction is due to the method "fileName::stripInvalid()", which removes illegal characters. Spaces are considered illegal for OpenFOAM, because C++ does not allow spaces in variable names.
