Topic: Old-Style Fortran Formatting (-fdec)
I am (slowly) converting an old large f77 program to f95. Unfortunately there is a lot of complex output taking advantage of old-style Fortran formatting (using "0", "+", " ", and "1"s). If ignored, the resulting output is all over the place.
In the GNU Fortran User Manual, to restore that type of output visually, there is an (not-recommended) option of "-fdec".
I realize that this shouldn't be used, but I need to do a before / after incremental change to test main and edge cases.
When I try to incorporate this option into my Project, an error is generated saying that this option does not exist.
I then tried to invoke gfortran directly in the command line with this option with the same result.
I suspect that this is a Compiler Build issue, but figured I would ask first.
(Note: Everything else in my program (finally) compiles correctly without this flag --- this was a final tweek)
Thanks for the Advice!
