Fortran 90 question about reading files with text

  1. Jul 8, 2008 #1
    I have a file with text and adjacent to it, the number i want to read. Below is the format. I was wondering how to read just the numbers without touching the text.

    trhy 30.0
    difje 30.0
    sdjk 66.5
    xmb 15.0
    dcos 15.0
    fjvm 2.573e-4
    srht 9.05e-3
    art3 0.0

    another format is:

    is...o2. mw2 31.998 htf2 0.0
    is...n2. mw3 28.014 htf3 0.0
    is..co2. mw4 44.009 htf4 -93.965
    is..h2o. mw5 18.015 htf5 -57.103

    if above two formats are in the same file, can I use DO loops for first format and second format individually by counting the number of lines?

    if the second set always starts with 'is' then once you are able to identify strings you can use this as a starting point to start your second do loop.
    I have found a tutorial with source code online. This should help you out:
