Error when using writeif statement

Hi, I am translating code from Fortran to Matlab with a converter and I get an error of "Unexpected MATLAB operator" in the following part:
for t = 1: ntime
for j = 1: nequation(t);
k = eqindex(t,j);
writef(fid_1,[repmat('%i',1,2),repmat('%16.8f',1,<)],t,k, beta(t,k,:), z(t,k,:), h(t,k,k));
writef(fid_1,['%0.15g \n']);
writef(fid_1,['%0.15g \n']);
Could someone please guide me as to what I am doing wrong?

Thanks for your quick answers. I guess my main problem is that I am translating from Fortran with this converter and this is the output which I got, which I know makes no sense. Does anyone know Fortran and Matlab? In Fortran the code is:
do t = 1ntime do j = 1, nequation(t) k = eqindex(t,j) write(1,'(2I,<nx+nfac+1>f16.8)')t,k, beta(t,k,:), Z(t,k,:), H(t,k,k) write(1,'(2I,<nx+nfac+1>f16.8)')t,k,sdbeta(t,k,:),sdZ(t,k,:),sdH(t,k,k) write(1,*) end do write(1,*) end do close(1)

Please, Jessica, learn how to use the "{} Code" button to format code. And please add information required to understand the question by editing the question, not by posting an answer. Thanks.

You are probably looking for fprintf or fwrite.
doc fprintf
doc fwrite

Beside that fact, that Matlab does not have a writef function, the expression:
is not valid in Matlab. The "<" is obviously unexpected. What should happen here?
Did you ask the author of the converter already? What did he reply?
