# Fortran Read Last Line From File

### Is Fortran easier to optimize than C for heavy calculations?

As a result the next READ starts reading from beginning of the next available record in the file, even if the last READ didn't pick up all of the data in its record. An exception to this rule occurs when using the Fortran 90 ADVANCE='NO' optional argument (see noadv.f ) with READ or WRITE. How to read the last line of an input file (F77)? routines in the fortran source like WATCOM Fortran 77 does?? losing anything?) If both, in that case I might consider them. The second, doing binary stream I/O, is a no-brainer. why it is needed in your application.

Stream Input/Output in Fortran. When Fortan was invented in 1957 its I/O facilities were entirely record-based. This was fine if you were reading or writing a file where all records had the same length, or alternatively a text file, where each line up to the line terminator counted as a record whatever its length. You will get more than you want, but you can use string functions (spreadsheet string to array) to get the last 10 lines. A completely different strategy is to read the entire file at the start of the program, and then keep track of the file size while running. Parsing at the start will give you the entire file, so you should be able to get the.

From time to time I read that Fortran is or can be faster then C for heavy calculations. Is that really true? I must admit that I hardly know Fortran, but the Fortran code I have seen so far did...
