Node: Diagnostics, Next: Keyword Index, Previous: Front End, Up: Top
Some diagnostics produced by
g77 require sufficient explanation
that the explanations are given below, and the diagnostics themselves
identify the appropriate explanation.
Identification uses the GNU Info format--specifically, the
command that displays the explanation is given within square
brackets in the diagnostic.
foo.f:5: Invalid statement [info -f g77 M FOOEY]
More details about the above diagnostic is found in the
documentation, menu item
M, submenu item
which is displayed by typing the UNIX command
info -f g77 M FOOEY.
Other Info readers, such as EMACS, may be just as easily used to display
the pertinent node.
In the above example,
g77 is the Info document name,
M is the top-level menu item to select,
and, in that node (named
Diagnostics, the name of
this chapter, which is the very text you're reading now),
FOOEY is the menu item to select.
