write a series of file

Hallo everybody,

I would like to write a series of file where they are different only for the name, like name_1, name_2,name_3 ecc...

what I'm doing is something like this:

do j=1:50
end do

how can put the J in the name in order to have a list of file which name is:



RE: write a series of file

A little trick: write j with I0 format. Remember to close the file after opening it.  I don't know what happens if you open a file and then open another one on the same channel.  It probably stays open but is unreachable and cannot be modified until you close the program.


   character*32:: filename
   integer:: j

   do j = 1, 50
      write (filename, 10) j
10    format ('name', I0, '.inp')
      open (unit=2, access='sequential', file=filename, status='old')
      close (2)
