Sorry if this is the wrong place, I had to choose between Programming and Technology and am not very familiar with these forums. Nevertheless, my question is does anyone know what this error message means? "If: malformed file inquiry" I have spent quite a while 'googling' for answers; there is indeed many threads on this error message, however most of the situations and responses are well over my head. A little more explanation of why I am getting this error message is that I am using an SSH connection to my University's server to submit a file to an executable, I've checked permissions and that the files are in the directory I think they are. What I'm really looking for here, is just an explanation of what that error message means in general. Thanks for any input.
