Is there any tool or script available for conversion of flecs code to fortran code. ?

In the google drive link that I got from this site, I found that this can be done using * FLECS32 ( LIBmaker.bat)*

Can anyone help with how to do this translation of code.

Thanks in advance

To translate from *.flx to *.f outside PSSe, save the following to a file "flecs.bat" and run it against your code:

@rem FLECS.bat - Translate flecs code *.flx to fortran66 *.f
@rem run as c:\..>flecs uexc
IF "%1"=="" (
   ECHO "Enter flex filename [no ext, expected .flx] to be translated to .f"
@rem the -C option preserves the comments in .flx
FLECS32 "%1" -C -L NO -F "%1.F" -W 132 -F77
@ECHO "Flecs ends"

Thanks for you reply. Can you please suggest how to run this againt my code. While am trying to run a flecs.bat file the new screen gets popup but I couldn't find any translation of Fortran code Can you please help me with this

Search the net for "Batch files" for more info. Open CMD window (=DOS window) using the link created by PSSe during installation. In the DOS window just enter you flxcode name without extension as:c:\..>flecs flxcode

Thanks, I have tried the same, Unfortunately for me its showing error as 'flecs' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

The saved 'flecs.bat' acts as a command. Did you open a DOS window with the PSSe link? This link set up path for PSSe to run. If so, type 'PSSe' to check that it works ok. Once in the DOS window, change directory to your working folder using: CD c:\xx\yy\workingfolder and try flecs again.

That conversion is made every time a flecs model is compiled in PSSE. However, the resulting code is old-fashioned with a lot of GOTO statements, no comments, etc. That code should not be used as source code because it in in practise "un-readable"! But, it serves to feed the fortran-compiler...

The Environment Manager uses the following argument:

flecs32 "xxx.flx" -L NO -F "C:\Users\yyy\.pssenvmgr\xxx.f" -W 132 -F77

Thanks. Do you have some latest sample Fortran code other than the old source code available for the exciter in the PSSE manual ?
