Hello dear,
I installed and built the latest version of LAMMPS (11 Aug 2017) and generated the executable lmp_gpu. When I ran of my older scripts with this executable to check, I realized that I cannot open the output log file with Text Editor since it is written in binary format. What can be the reason for this change ? (my older executable was lmp_ubuntu_parallel). Do I miss something when building the new version ?

​there has been no change in the log file format. log file output is more-or-less the same as what​ it used to be and what is printed to the screen (depending on the value of the echo flag).

the only ways i know to turn this into binary is file system corruption. that can be due to bad RAM, a bug in the file system driver, a defective hard drive, a broken disk controller or writing to the same file from multiple processes when the log file is hosted on a networked file system. 


Thank you
