This is Giuseppe. In this post I am going to give you some advices on how to use the basic Input/Output (I/O) operations in Fortran. Stay tuned if you are interested in other programming languages, because I just started my journey in Scientific Communication. Why communicating programming languages to the general public? The reply to this question is actually easy. The first step towards a deep Scientific development cannot put the coding abilities away. Nowadays, coding means having a trusty tool to better understand Scientific results. That said, coding must be considered as something to bring to the general attention of the public. In my posts, you will find arguments related to Fortran, Matlab, Mathematica, R, C++ and much more...just give me the time. Divulgative posts on Science will also be discussed here...again: give me the time :-)
Using a high level programming language requires experience. However, some basic facts can be actually learned relatively fast. Such basic syntactic structures represent the foundations of any code, regardless the particular application.
Specific applications in Scientific programming (and also non scientific programming) require necessarily the knowledge of the most common Input/Output (I/O) operations: tell to your machine something, allow the machine to communicate you the result and...hope that your machine will not realize that it can solve problems faster and better than you :-) (that would make the machine equivalent to Skynet :-) ).
In this post, I am going to tell you about the basic I/O operations, using a high level programming language known as Fortran.
Before starting working with Fortran or any other programming language, you might want to know how to edit, compile and run a Fortran code. Some info about all these processes are deeply described here.
In general, like any other programming language, the I/O operations you are allowed to perform using Fortran, could be summarized in four steps
Please, feel free to leave here any kind of comment. I will be really glad to reply to all your questions.
The material about the I/O operations can be found here. Have fun !!!!! :-)
