Struggle_Achieve is on a distinguished road
Hello Everyone I am using a shell script to run my case.
In that I have used the changeDictionary command to populate the boundary conditions in ZERO folder.
But while running using script I get this error:

Code:

But when I am manually running the changeDictionary command then its working.
I am confused about the reason for the error.
My changeDictionaryDict file's code is as follows:

It was due to the exceptionally large folder name. As renaming the folder solved the problem
