PRIMARY INPUT DIRECTORY

Syntax:

PRIMARY INPUT [FILE] DIRECTORY [:] <filename>

Function:

Specifies the default directory from which primary files are read when no explicit directory specification is made. In this context, a primary file is any Fortran file which is not referenced by an INCLUDE statement.

This command is position sensitive in the command line or specification file in which it is written. It applies to the files which follow it, and a list of Fortran files may contain several different primary directory specifications.

The command INPUT DIRECTORY specifies the default input directory for both primary and INCLUDE files. The command INCLUDE INPUT DIRECTORY specifies the input directory for INCLUDE files.
