The constructs disabled by
PARAMETERstatements, plus type-declaration statements specifying initial values.
Here are some sample initializations that are disabled by the
PARAMETER (VAL='9A304FFE'X) REAL*8 STRING/8HOUTPUT00/ DATA VAR/4HABCD/
Here are more sample initializations that are disabled by the
INTEGER IA CHARACTER BELL PARAMETER (IA = 'A') PARAMETER (BELL = 7)
Here are sample statements that are disabled by the
IVAR = 4HABCD PRINT *, IMAX0(2HAB, 2HBA)
The above constructs, when used, can tend to result in non-portable code. But, they are widely used in existing Fortran code in ways that often are quite portable. Therefore, they are enabled by default.
