What's wrong with string substitution?
s = "gig.gfn"
I meant to transfer directly the content of what is gig.gfn in your
example (or rather an .inp file content, really, not .gfn), not the name
of the file. The idea is to avoid the temporary file altogether.
It's not urgent or absolutely necessary, because a temp file is fine.
But I got the idea when I saw (again) that "outfile" allows to put stuff
into a string buffer.
