error on compiling with PGF77 command

Dear PGI users

when i use the PGF77 command, i get the follwing error

PGFTN-F-0009 - unable to open assembly file <file.f>

as im new to this, can someone help?


Hi kp38,

This error usually occurs when you do not have write permissions in the directory that you are compiling. Try compiling in a directory that you know you have write permissions, such as your home directory. If it still doesn’t compile, please post the output of “pgf77 -v file.f” and let us know what OS your running.
