events file for moving grid
Hi all, I did everything in tut.13. It seems like every thing is O.K. but after running the (pmovlink) the .evt file is empty. Please advise if experienced anything like that. Thanks

Re: events file for moving grid
Try using the input files You got with Your StarCD release. You can find them in


Execute the commands in <prep.inp>, save the model file and run <pmovlink>. Let me know if this doesn't work.

Re: events file for moving grid
Stephan, I have the .inp file already but what you mean by Execute the commands in? do you mean to re-enter it or what? please advise, thanks =Ahmed=

Ahmed, I'm sorry, my message is a bit messed up, some words are missing. Okay, next try: You can edit the input files with the built in editor of prostar (File menu -> Edit files), edit the file prep.inp. The editor has an Execute command, easiest way is to simply press ctrl+m - the complete input file will be executed. I've tested the prep.inp with the linux version (v3.100a) and it works without problems. Btw, You can use any editor and copy+paste the commands to prostar's command line. Hope this helps Stephan

Re: events file for moving grid
Thanks Stephan, it is working. Do you know how to change the cell number from right handed to left handed (i.e. to be numbered in X-direction). =Ahmed=
