MAXIMUM NUMBER OF CONTINUATION LINES

Syntax:

CONTINUATIONS: <integer>

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF CONTINUATION LINES: <integer>

Function:

This command specifies the maximum number of continuation lines in the output code written by fpt. Long declaration statements are subdivided, and code statements are compressed, by suspension of the spacing and indentation rules, to fit within the available number. Statements which cannot be made to fit are marked by warnings in the output files.

Most systems allow at least 49 continuation lines but some FORTRAN 77 compilers allow only 19.

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 Yes

Default

The number of continuation lines is not limited by default. The number of continuation lines in single statements generated automatically by fpt is normally smaller than 49 (Note that defaults may be changed in the configuration file).

Examples:

$ fpt milatcc.fsp "%maximum_number_continuation_lines=19"

$ fpt aero "%continuations=49"
