You have to study the documentation. For example, if you look into flexwrf.input.forward1, you can see that there is a parameter IOUTTYPE which governs the output format. You have selected the default binary format. To read this format you need some code, see FpOutput.

i tried to do with IOUTTYPE=2 which is for netcdf format .. but i run for both concentration and trajectory ..but the trajectory is in .txt format only. concentration getting in netcdf but trajectory not.. what i want to do please help me

please help me with some documents also

There is no netcdf output for trajectories. What's your problem with a simple text format? It is easy to read.

What exactly is the problem with the text file? It is even human-readable.
In any case, this is something you need to solve with your supervisor, not FLEXPART developers. And if you need only simple trajectories it might be better to use Flextra (which also produces text files as output - what else?)
