Ifort and gfortran readig a file

Ifort and gfortran readig a file

I appology if this place is not the appropiate place to ask my question.

Suppose that I have a file "sampleFile.dat" with 12 rows.

When i compile the below program with ifort i get 13.

When I compile the same program with gfortran i get 12.

Why i get differents values?

Thank you in advance.

program nlines
    implicit none
    integer :: nrows, ios
    nrows = 0
    open(unit=15, file ="sampleFile.dat")
    do while (ios == 0)
    read(15, * , iostat = ios )
    nrows = nrows + 1
    end do


end program nlines

Please attach a data file that shows the problem. Don't paste it in, use the attach feature.

I realized that if I add the sentence:
if (ios == 0) nrows = nrows + 1

then the ifort compiler gives the correct answerd but then the gfortran compiler does not.

Your program executes 13 READs for 12 lines, and thus 13 increments of nrows. The last READ fails with an IOS of -1, but you've already changed nrows to 13. Your edit that tests ios is a correct fix. I don't know why gfortran gives a different result. The file you attached has many more than 12 rows.

Thank you Steve.

I have attached the right file. I solved the problem with the "if (ios == 0) nrows = nrows + 1" sentence.
