Simple writing to a file...

Simple writing to a file...

Simple writing to a file...


I'm trying to output to a file - in fortran 77 - some variables I'm reading from a file (numbers, text, etc...)

I'm opening the file as:

OPEN ( UNIT = 14,
. FILE = 'INFO.txt',

I'm trying to output some values like:

READ (*,'(6X,I6)') VAR1
WRITE (14,100) VAR1

But it's not working...

What am I doing wrong?...

Sorry for the incovinience.



RE: Simple writing to a file...

I would not use any format during the READing process unless it is absolutely necessary; column oriented reading is mostly trouble and rigid. See if you can simply go the list-oriented route: "READ(*,*)...".

As far as the WRITE goes, you do not show what format labeled "100" looks like.
