Good day Mr. Timmes,
I tried the inlist, and the error that displayed before did not appear
anymore; the run was completed. Thank you helping me figure this out. Will
do what you suggested in the previous email.
Regards to the MESA Developers and Community. Looking forward to more
advancement for MESA. Thank you once again.
