FIXED FORMAT

Note that FREE FORMAT, TAB FORMAT or FIXED FORMAT is usually specified in a format file referenced from the configuration file. Free format is strongly recommended for most Fortran programming, but the default format has not been changed in order to preserve compatibility with existing fpt and WinFPT installations.
