CONTINUATIONS

Syntax:

CONTINUATIONS : <integer>

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF CONTINUATION LINES : <integer>

Function:

Specifies the maximum number of continuation lines in the output code written by FPT. Long declaration statements are subdivided, and code statements are compressed, by suspension of the spacing and indentation rules, to fit within the available number. Statements which cannot be made to fit are marked by warnings in the output files.

Most systems allow at least 49 continuation lines but some FORTRAN 77 compilers allow only 19.

Where to use this command:

Operating system command line

Yes


Configuration file, config.fsp

Yes


Specification (FSP) files, *.fsp

Yes


Interactively, to FPT> prompt:

Yes


Interactive command files

Yes


Embedded in the Fortran code

Yes


Default:

The number of continuation lines is not limited by default. The number of continuation lines in single statements generated automatically by FPT is normally smaller than 49 (Note that defaults may be changed in the configuration file).

Examples:

$ fpt milatcc %maximum_number_continuation_lines=19

$ fpt aero %continuations=49
