FortranRecordReader

class ChiantiPy.fortranformat.FortranRecordReader(format)[source] [edit on github]

Bases: object

Generate a reader object for FORTRAN format strings

Typical use case …

>>> header_line = FortranRecordReader('(A15, A15, A15)')
>>> header_line.read('              x              y              z')
['              x', '              y', '              z']
>>> line = FortranRecordReader('(3F15.3)')
>>> line.read('          1.000          0.000          0.500')
[1.0, 0.0, 0.5]
>>> line.read('          1.100          0.100          0.600')
[1.1, 0.1, 0.6]

Note: it is best to create a new object for each format, changing the format causes the parser to reevalute the format string which is costly in terms of performance
