KEEP CONTINUATION LINES

Syntax:

KEEP CONTINUATION LINES IGNORE CONTINUATION LINES

Function:

The command KEEP CONTINUATION LINES instructs fpt to preserve the original pattern of continuation lines in the rewritten Fortran code. The command IGNORE CONTINUATION LINES instructs fpt to ignore the original pattern of continuation lines and to write a continuation line only after a trailing comment or when the text of a statement would otherwise run beyond column 72 or 132, depending on the output code layout.

Continuation lines are always ignored when a long statement is reformatted to fit into a specified number of continuation lines, in response to the MAXIMUM NUMBER OF CONTINUATION LINES command.

New continuation lines are generated automatically, and the original continuation lines are always ignored, when IF statements and declaration statements are reformatted in response to the COLUMN FORMAT commands.
