    There is another simple way, that I have used several times.
    Just write
           OPEN(UNIT=21, FILE="fluka.stop", STATUS="NEW")
    Of course, you can insert this statement into any IF block,
    according to any logic you wish (for instance, based on the
    value of NCASE - see answer by Battistoni - or of a counter
    of particular events written by the user).
    Of course, the unit number should be one that you have not
    already used in input, and should be > 20 anyway.
