fortran (system commands)

hi, i wish to know if fortran has commands like 'winwait' , 'winwait active' (i found these commands in Autoit) which can be used to run/automate windows applications. i am looking for developing a code which can run a third party program based on some 'IF conditions'.

RE: fortran (system commands)

well there are 'addons' to fortran which can do thinks like that
same as addons for graphic and so on

I use Winteracter

RE: fortran (system commands)

echo. >done.txt 
In your code, delete done.txt then poll for the presence of done.txt in 1s intervals.
