4.1.6 Tilde Expansion (UNIX Systems Only)

On UNIX systems, if you specify ~/ as the first two characters of a filename, the ~ is expanded as your home directory. Similarly, you can start a filename with ~username/, and the ~username is expanded to the home directory of "username''. If you specify ~/file as the case file to be written, FLUENT saves the file file.cas in your home directory. You can specify a subdirectory of your home directory as well: if you enter ~/cases/file.cas, FLUENT saves the file file.cas in the cases subdirectory.
