Hi! I got a .exe file compiled by Fortran. I have to run it thousands of times, each time with different input arguments (which I have to enter manually). I want to do this in IDL automatically. How to call an executable in IDL?How to include the input arguments (for the Fortran exe file) from IDL?

Sorry for the late reply. A very-very quick and sharp answer, as you set it,  is NO.
For calling external executable files you can use the command SPAWN in IDL.
We suppose you have to pass/define  parameters in the .exe command or not?
What you want, might be achievable with a batch (.bat) file for windows instead?
Nevertheless in IDL you have to write code/program to achieve what you want.

In the download area we will place the External Development Guide of IDL which of course can be found in software installation directory help/pdf.

Do you have access to source FORTRAN code?
What exactly the process is?
Could this be achieved by writing IDL code?
How many images do you have to process?

Give us a little bit more info...

Regards,
