Problem: I tried to load a compressed Fluent case and data file into Tecplot and it did not work. is there a way to load compressed Fluent case and data files to Tecplot?
Solution: No. In order for Tecplot to do its memory mapped I/O the files need to be uncompressed first using gzip. You can get a copy of the windows version of (the command line) gzip from: ftp://ftp.tecplot.com/pub/people/jim/gzip.exe To uncompress: gzip -d *.gz
Note: Tecplot 360 2009 and newer handles compressed FLUENT files.
