Error when compile fortran 77 using ifort

Error when compile fortran 77 using ifort


I am using ifort to compile a small fortran 77 code for some calculations. However it came with an error of "can't open file *.obj for write".

I am very new with this, I don't have the .obj file and never used it. Before this I was using Lahey/Fujistu compiler and everything works fine.

It is possible that you tried to compile when the working directory was one of the directories where the compiler itself is installed, or some other directory where you do not have "write" permission.

Place the source file in a directory that you know "belongs" to you, and retry compiling there.

Thanks mecej4, I moved the files to another folder and it works.
