OPEN and FORMAT statements
« on: April 25, 2008, 04:18:50 PM »
Need a little help in porting some legacy Fortran.  Most of my code has compiled well, but having problems with:

DISPOSE='DELETE' in an OPEN statement
results in :  ? FORTRAN Runtime Error:
                  ? Bad iolist specifier


<> in formats for evaluating a quantity for a variable at run-time.

Susie --

Much of the legacy code that I upgrade also has many Fortran extensions offered by some vendors ... they are NOT part of the formal Fortan language and their usage makes your program non-Code compliant ... so, you encounter problems trying to convert to a different vendor's compiler.  Examples that I encounter include Q-formatting, Encode/Decode, Dispose and <>.  To avoid this type problem, you must convert those statements to the formal Fortran language instead of using the vendor's extensions.

Instead of OPEN(... DISPOSE=DELETE ...), try CLOSE(... STATUS=DELETE ...).  That might solve that problem.

Good luck -- Mark
