3.4.2 System Commands for Windows Operating Systems

If you are running FLUENT under a Windows operating system, all characters following the ! up to the next newline character will be executed. The results of a command will appear in the FLUENT console, or in a separate window if the command starts an external program, such as Notepad.

 > !del junk.*

 > !notepad script.rp

!cd and !dir will execute the DOS commands and the screen output will appear in the FLUENT console. The !cd command with no argument will display the current working directory in the FLUENT console.

Several examples of system commands entered in the console are shown below.
