Hello,

I need to open a file from my code which is written in fortran 95. can you tell me which is the subroutine for the same.

I need to edit the file while running my program.

I also need a procedure which will wait for the activity that i am doing in the opened file to terminate.


Thanks,
Ajith.

This is how I launch Notepad.exe from my program ...

Code:

       INTEGER FUNCTION Launch1_FN()
C      -------------------------------
C
C      Launch Notepad as file editor
C
C      -----------------------------------------------------------------
       INTEGER START_PPROCESS@
       IA = START_PPROCESS@('Notepad.EXE',' ')
       Launch1_FN = 1
       END


You could be far more sophisticated than this. For example, check IA to see if Notepad did actually launch/ In the second set of apostrophes, you could put the file name you want to edit.

Launch1_FN is an Integer Function so it can be used as a callback from a Menu item (or a button) in a Clearwin program.

Regards

Eddie

I got the answer for this.

This is what we have to do..

INTEGER i
i = START_PROCESS@('Notepad.EXE','textfilename')

Cheers,
Ajith
