ERROR of not a valid integer

Hi, all!

I’m running a LAMMPS scripts including 3 atomic types Al Ni Co, respectively. I chose the Mishin-2015-Al-Ni-Co.eam.alloy potential. When I executed the scripts, I reveived an error said ‘ERROR on proc 0: Not a valid integer number: ‘<!–[if’ (src/MANYBODY/pair_eam_alloy.cpp:188)’. Is it beacuse of the MANYBODY package? Do I need to compile the lammps software?

Current, I am using the lmp_daily (LAMMPS (24 Dec 2020) vesion. And the scripts are shown as below:

BTW, it works with KIM interactions, but failed with eam/alloy.

I cannot reproduce this error. That potential file works fine for me. I suspect you corrupted the format when you downloaded the potential file. Please make sure that you do a “real download” (often this is done via a right click on the link and using “save link as…”) and not cut-n-paste the file into a text editor.
with the latter you may corrupt the format or copy non-ASCII characters (since web browsers often replace ASCII characters with similar looking non-ASCII versions for better readability of the text). LAMMPS requires ASCII encoding and a perfect match of the documented file format.


You are right. Thank you very much.
I did use the right click and save the link as before. Maybe I copy and paste the file before the downloading finished.
I tried again. It works well this time.
