"Cannot open ... " error

Hello all,

Sometimes when I execute a program/command, I get this "Cannot open ..." error, even when the command executes correctly and produces correct results.

Here's part of the script:

blade72(65)% myprogram prm.out
Output was printed to designated file.

Cannot open blade72(66)%

I basically ran a kind of "helloworld" program that doesn't do anything fancy. And still, I get this "Cannot open..." all the time!

So what should I do to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum.

What are you trying to do? what is the meaning of "blade72(65)%" here?
I guess you mistakenly put your prompt string in the script or something like that?

Oh, the blade()% ... is just whatever normally goes before the % prompt.
So basically, when nothing is wrong, the prompt would look like "blade () %"
, but after I execute my program, there is a "Cannot open", added to the "blade () %" and if I hit enter, the prompt will get back to "blade ()%".

Please try to run the script after commenting out the line "Cannot open blade72(66)%".

I am not familiar with such statement but if it is not changing the functionality try it.
