Unique Unit Number for openeing file

Unique Unit Number for openeing file

HI Guys,
Happy New Year.
I have a library where I read the same file many times in different source files.
I want to know if there is some way through which I can set a unique Unit Number each time by checking its availability.

Thank You.

RE: Unique Unit Number for openeing file

A first solution already available in Fortran77 :

CODE --> fortran

SUBROUTINE odunit(kfile) ! Returns the first file unit which is not presently used
      INTEGER,INTENT(out) :: kfile
      DO kfile=8,200
        IF(.NOT.L) RETURN

The new solution of Fortran2003 : the unit is generated by the OPEN statement
