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 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
