One option that would help me (and probably countless others) to debug legacy code is an -fcheck-size option.

The meaning of this option would be:

Check if array references fall within the extent of the array.

        REAL A(10,10)
        A = 1.0
        CALL SUB(A,10)
        REAL A(N, N)

Fortran runtime error: Array reference out of bounds for array 'a', upper bound of dimension 2 exceeded (100 > 10)

Yep, that's the problem - array bounds checking "catches" this, while the run-of-the-mill index computation let this fall within the extent of the array.

Parts of the code I have to maintain were written 30-40 years ago. Apparently this was accepted practice then (and it would still work today).
