where are the compiled executables?
i learned that one can compile solver in a applications/solvers folder, with wmake. and then use the compiled solvers in cases.
my question is, i was looking for the compiled exe file like icoFoam, but i only find the source code in .C.
but in the cavity tutorial i already used icofoam. could someone tell me how this work?
my second question, i did not find in bashrc file something about icoFoam, so how does this work, that when i type icoFoam, this solver is executed?
yo see i m a beginner, thanks for help.
ofcourse i assumed you installed your OpenFOAM on opt folder ;)
the .bashrc is a script which sets your environment variables where your system looks for the executables. To see where the icoFoam executable hides you can use the command
Also the last line of a successful wmake-compilation gives you the full path to the produced executable.
Consider reading more about shell programming or read a bash tutorial.
Thanks, I got it.
