[SciPy-Dev] Adding an unformatted Fortran file reader to Scipy
Mon Apr 15 05:18:43 CDT 2013
My recollection is, that the unformatted fortran files are machine
specific, so cannot be moved to different architectures. I suppose that
should be flagged somehow. Of course portability was the reason for
developing HDF, CDF and FITS. A converter might be useful. The main reason
for using unformatted data files is of course speed. For that reason just
having a reader is kind of anomalous. I suppose someone might want to write
an unformatted file for reading into a fortran program - which needs a
writer. I guess this could be added when needed.
