Hello,

I am experimenting with a Freefem script, which demonstrates the composite finite element spaces, as in the example solving Stokes equations given at Composite finite element spaces NEW!.

The script runs properly when the script in “using * solve* or

*” is used. But when the script in the section “using*

**problem***and*

**varf***” is used it gives an error:*

**matrix**Error line number 17, in file stokes-in-diff-meshes.edp, before token =syntax error

current line = 17

Compile error : syntax error

line number :17, =

error Compile error : syntax error

line number :17, =

code = 1 mpirank: 0

I have thought that the error is due to any bad hidden character - however, I edit the text with pure text editor (vim) and it does not look to be the case.

I run Freefem 4.6, installed with FreeFEM_4.6_Ubuntu_withPETSc_amd64.deb in a linux ubuntu machine.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

For convenience I have included the script that I run (copied from Composite finite element spaces NEW!).

Thank you.
