COLUMN FORMAT DECLARATIONS

Syntax:

[NO] COLUMN FORMAT DECLARATIONS

Function:

Specifies whether or not declaration statements are to be reformatted with every object declared on a single line. This is convenient if the declarations are to be annotated with trailing comments. For example:

INTEGER & NVERT & , NITER & , MAXITER & , IPASS

Trailing comments associated with the declarations of objects in the original source code are transcribed to all declaration statements for those objects in the output code.

Reformatting of the declaration statements may cause single declaration statements to span many lines. The number of continuation lines may be controlled by the command MAXIMUM NUMBER OF CONTINUATION LINES. The declaration statements are then split automatically into separate statements.

The command COLUMN FORMAT is equivalent to the two commands COLUMN FORMAT DECLARATIONS and COLUMN FORMAT CONDITIONALS.

When code is examined interactively it is usually easier to turn column formatting off.
