Fortran: inner loop dependence on outer loop

  1. May 14, 2012 #1

    I want to write an inner loop which takes values based on the variable values of the outer loop. For outer loop, m=1, Nmax and for inner loop, I want n to take values from 1 to Nmax-m. But I am not sure if I can directly specify n = 1, Nmax-m. Also I want to use Nmax-m value for one of the calculation inside the loop, how should I specify that?

    Thanks a lot for your help,

    You mean
    Code (Text):

    do m = 1, nmax
    * calculate something
       do n = 1, nmax-m
    *    calculate something else
    Fortran won't have any problem with that (unless your compiler only understands Fortran 66, which is unlikely!)
