Hi All,

I'm trying to write the content of an 2-dimensional array (integers) to a comma seperated file. I have trouble to convert the numbers into a "string". I want to do things like this:

integer myarray(20,3)
! I fill the array here with data
open(10,'c:\tmp\file.dat',STATUS='REPLACE'
do n=1 to 20
  mystring=myarr(n,1)//','
  mystring=myarr(n,2)//','
  mystring=myarr(n,3)//','
  write (10,*) mystring
enddo
etc...

I do not really how to format the numbers and change them into a "string" so I can write them to the file the way I want.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks in advance.

Hing.

Would the following work?
 
write (10,*) myarr(n,1),",",myarr(n,2),",",myarr(n,3)

Thanks mlmcc,

I thought about that too, but the problem is that each line I've written to the file will wrap automatically, something I don't want to happen.

anyone other ideas?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

What do you mean the line or file wraps?  

Generally wrapping is a function of the display not the file.  

It's been a long time since I did any FORTRAN but I thought the line I gave you would do something like

45,56,78
23,43,65

    write(10,20)myarr(n,1),myarr(n,2),myarr(n,3)
20   format(1x,i5,",",i5,",",i5)

This is a completely simple application of the FORTRAN FORMAT capability - you really should look into what else can be done

Best regards
