Compiling msi2lmp

Hi,

we're trying to make msi2lmp in the /tools/msi2lmp/src/ directory (taken from the source tar ball downloaded from the LAMMPS website today) but get the following error message:

make: *** No rule to make target `WriteDataFile.c', needed by `WriteDataFile.o'. Stop.

Has anyone seen this before? We're thinking it might have something to do with the fact that the WriteDataFile.c doesn't exist in the /tools/msi2lmp/src/ directory. Instead of it there seems to be two files; WriteDataFile01.c and WriteDataFile05.c, that at first glance differ in the LAMMPS version for which they generate LAMMPS files. Natively renaming either of the files as WriteDataFile.c doesn't solve the problem but generates another error instead.

Thanks in advance,

Pierre

yes. steve made a mistake when updating the sources with what i sent
him recently. there have been more updates and corrections to the code
since, so please use the version from here for now:

http://git.icms.temple.edu/git/?p=lammps-icms.git;a=tree;f=tools/msi2lmp;hb=HEAD
there is a link next to the word "snapshot"

axel.

I will fix this today …
