Help sought please,
I have a file generate by a perl script, containing only the current date, written as, e.g.: 16/ 10/ 2008.
I am trying to read from this file in my grads script. Here is the script I wrote:
say sublin(result,2)
'draw title Valid on:  'Day' 'Month' 'Year
According to the Grads documentation, the first record of this read statement is a return error, and I can recover the records from 2 and repeatedly reading for subsequent records.
I do not get beyond the first line of my script, geeting error 1, which is an open error.
I have not seem a single script which reads from a file.
Does the read function actually work, or where is my error?
Assistance appreciated
