<No, but it'll help any and all Fortran programs that have to be compiled
with -fno-automatic because they were developed on systems where local
variables in subroutines kept their values from call to call.
Given the number of times my advice on comp.lang.fortran of compiling
with -fno-automatic actually `stopped the bug', I'd think that's rather
Interesting, considering that *every* version of the Fortran standard has
emphasized that there is no requirement for local variables in subroutines
to keep their values from call to call (the only exception is initialized
data that is never reassigned).
