fpt and WinFPT Reference Manual - Command-line Commands

| SimCon Home | Ref Manual Home |





fpt analyses all expressions in the code for potential anomalies. Diagnostics are reported if:

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 No


Some cases, e.g. loss of precision in assignment across an equals sign and integers raised to negative powers are reported by default. Simple cases of mixed precision are not. (Note that defaults may be changed in the configuration file).


fpt is run interactively. In this code, r4 and r8 are 4 and 8-byte real numbers and i4 is a 4-byte integer. The command is made:
