COMMAND CONTINUATION CHARACTER

Syntax:

COMMAND CONTINUATION CHARACTER [:] <string>

Function:

This command sets the continuation character for commands to fpt, not the continuation character in the Fortran code (Please see 'CONTINUATION CHARACTER').

Some fpt commands are terminated automatically at the end of a line of input. The command continuation character is used to indicate that the command continues, and is used both in fsp files and in interactive command files. The character may be changed to conform to that used by the current operating system (for example '-' in VMS or '\' in Linux).

The character is entered as a quoted string, but only a single character may be used.
