Writing to/Reading from a subdirectory?

Writing to/Reading from a subdirectory?

Writing to/Reading from a subdirectory?

I have a program that outputs a ton of files.  I'd like to output each file type to a separate subdirectory under the directory in which the program was executed.  

Additionally, since it reads in a ton of input files, I'd like to do the reverse and read them in from a subdirectory as well.  

Any input on this is greatly appreciated.


RE: Writing to/Reading from a subdirectory?

Never mind.  I figured it out.  Nothing like programming at midnight on a holiday weekend to get your thesis done.  

RE: Writing to/Reading from a subdirectory?

How is that done? I am intrested now....I usually keep all my files in the same directory (it gets cumbersome)

RE: Writing to/Reading from a subdirectory?

I'm not sure if there's a more elegant way, but since there is no "path" option for the OPEN command, you must include the path in the file name:

c      Example program
       character*80  outdir,outfile
       character*160 fullname
c      Combine path and file name:
       fullname = outdir(1:len_trim(outdir))//outfile
c      Print to screen to check:
       print*,'Path and File: ',fullname
c      For example :
       close (7)

I know it's a trivial thing, but having things come out in an orderly fashion always helps me think better.  :)
