IGNORE CONTINUATION LINES

Syntax:

IGNORE CONTINUATION LINES

KEEP CONTINUATION LINES

Function:

IGNORE CONTINUATION LINES and KEEP CONTINUATION LINES specify whether FPT preserves the pattern of continuation lines in the original source code. The original continuation lines are preserved by default. They are ignored:

1. within a single statement, when a new continuation line is generated because code would otherwise overflow beyond column 72 in fixed format or column 132 in free format or in fixed format extended source;

2. within declaration statements and IF and ELSEIF statements which are reformatted because of the COLUMN FORMAT directives;

3. if an executable or DATA statement is compressed into a specified number of continuation lines as a result of the MAXIMUM NUMBER OF CONTINUATION LINES command.

4. if IGNORE CONTINUATION LINES is specified.

If the original continuation lines are ignored, FPT generates new continuation lines whenever code would otherwise extend beyond printer column 72 or 132 as appropriate. The printer column is computed with the assumption that tab stops are at 8 character intervals.

The state of this switch is displayed by the SHOW FORMAT command and is saved to an FSP file by the SAVE FORMAT command.
