CHANGE PARAMETER STATEMENTS TO STANDARD FORM

Syntax:

[DO NOT] CHANGE PARAMETER STATEMENTS [TO] [STANDARD] [FORM[AT]]
PARAMETER STATEMENTS AS WRITTEN

Function:

The command CHANGE PARAMETER STATEMENTS TO STANDARD FORM instructs fpt to convert FORTRAN IV PARAMETER statements to standard Fortran 77 format. FORTRAN IV PARAMETER statements are accepted by VMS Fortran and by some other systems. They statements are written without parentheses, and the data types of the parameters are inferred from the objects which they represent. Thus, for example, in the statement:

PARAMETER KAPPA=0.6416

the data type of KAPPA is inferred to be single precision REAL, even if KAPPA is not declared elsewhere and would have an implicit data type of INTEGER. The PARAMETER statement is converted to read:

REAL*4 KAPPA PARAMETER (KAPPA=0.6416)

Note that the Fortran 77 declaration style is retained so that the code may be compiled on the original host system.

The command PARAMETER STATEMENTS AS WRITTEN instructs fpt to transcribe the PARAMETER statements without modification.
