thanks a lot...
I have test the wind transfer routine. The subroutine works normally, but nothing works.

when writing to the list please include all necessary files to reproduce your problem.

And following Warrick's recommendation, be sure you're setting the routine to be used. A simple way to check if your custom routine is being called is to include a write statement in the routine.

I don't use `binary` so probably won't be able to offer much help but,
since you haven't attached your inlists, did you also add

     use_other_binary_wind_transfer = .true.

to your `&binary_controls` inlists?
