FORMAT FORMAT SPECIFICATIONS
[DO NOT] FORMAT FORMAT SPECIFICATIONS
This command determines whether fpt applies the user's token formatting rules within Fortran format specifications. If formats are formatted, the SPACE BEFORE and SPACE AFTER rules, and the UPPER CASE and LOWER CASE rules are applied. If they are not, fpt treats the format as if it were a string, and reproduces the characters exactly as originally written.
If format specifications are formatted, formatting is applied both in FORMAT statements and in embedded format strings in READ, WRITE, ENCODE and DECODE statements.
Fortran format specifications may contain embedded expressions within <> delimiters (This usage is non-standard). Variables written within <> delimiters are not modified by the RENAME SYMBOL command unless format specifications are formatted.
