The following exception type is used to signal errors when handling FortranFiles.


Exception thrown if an operation on a FortranFile fails or cannot be performed. Argument msg is a description of the failure mode.

The errors could be:

  • using unsupported features, or invalid combinations of features
  • I/O errors related to the Fortran layer, e.g. non-matching record markers. I/O errors on the underlying IO, e.g. read/write failure, will show up as one of the Julia built-in exceptions.
