FIXED FORMAT OUTPUT

Syntax:

FIXED FORMAT [OUTPUT]

Function:

FPT writes code in fixed format, in extended Fortran 77 tab format or in Fortran 90 free format. For a description of TAB format, please see the TAB FORMAT command.

The FIXED FORMAT command instructs FPT to write code in standard fixed format. Note, however, that the code line length and the continuation character may be modified by the commands:

% OUTPUT CODE LINE LENGTH

% CONTINUATION CHARACTER

Care must be taken with the settings of these commands if strict Fortran 77 layout is to be produced.

Where to use this command:

Operating system command line

Yes


Configuration file, config.fsp

Yes


Specification (FSP) files, *.fsp

Interactively, to FPT> prompt:

Default:

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 recommended for most Fortran programming, but the default format has not been changed in order to preserve compatibility with existing fpt and WinFPT installations.
