CONTINUATION CHARACTER

Syntax:

CONTINUATION CHARACTER [:] <string>

Function:

Selects the statement continuation character written in the fixed format Fortran code output by FPT. No check is made that the continuation character is legal in the target Fortran implementation. This command has no effect when code is written in free format.

Please note that 0 is not a legal continuation character in most Fortran implementations, and that continuation characters in TAB format must be numeric.

The continuation character is displayed by the SHOW FORMAT command. It is saved by the SAVE FORMAT command.
