I am trying to follow these instructions for implementing the utility written by gschaider :

But get the following error:

mich@mich-TravelMate-8372:~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/applications/inletProfile$ wmake
g++ -m64 -Dlinux64 -DWM_DP -Wall -Wextra -Wno-unused-parameter -Wold-style-cast -Wnon-virtual-dtor -O3 -DNoRepository -ftemplate-depth-100 -I/home/mich/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/cfdTools/lnInclude -I/home/mich/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/finiteVolume/lnInclude -IlnInclude -I. -I/home/mich/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude -I/home/mich/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/OSspecific/POSIX/lnInclude -fPIC -Xlinker --add-needed -Xlinker --no-as-needed -L/home/mich/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib \
-lcfdTools -lOpenFOAM -ldl -lm -o OpenFOAM.out
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lcfdTools
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [OpenFOAM.out] Error 1

I am a newbie and not to good with the programming side yet. Maybe I am doing something obvious wrong.

Would someone be so kind as to show me the exact implementation of the utility once it has been compliled?

Also, will this utility be able to implement a turbulance profile as well?

Thanks in advance.

I suppose that you have not compiled OpenFOAM properly? In your shell:
