foamLog error in OpenFoam 2.0.1
Hello all!!!

I tried to run foamLog in OpenFoam 2.0.1 and I get the following error message:

bash: /opt/openfoam201/bin/foamLog: Permission denied

Does anyone know why?

Thankd you,

Greetings to all!

Actually the problem is due to a very strange glitch... in "/opt/openfoam200" foamLog had permissions to execute, but in "/opt/openfoam201" it no longer has.

Run the following command and it'll only be necessary once per installation:

sudo chmod +x /opt/openfoam201/bin/foamLog
It will give permissions back to foamLog for script execution.
edit: I forgot about sudo before posting!

Best regards,

Thank you both. The code works perfectly.
