Gfortran module definition

Gfortran module definition

Hi all,

I am struggling to get a module working, it returns the error:

$ gfortran -o executable variable1.f95

/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/5/../../../x86_64-linux-gnu/crt1.o: In function `_start':
undefined reference to `main'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

I'm using Ubuntu MATE V16.04 running Gfortran v5.4

I've noticed I have to call the module with the actual name 'variable1 otherwise it Gfortran won't see it.

The module definition follows:

MODULE variable1

RE: Gfortran module definition

You've got a module - the module won't do anything unless you have a program that calls it. Try something like


module modulename
end module
program anyname
   use modulename

   ! call routines from modulename
end program 

Alternatively, you can put the program in a different file and build both files together

RE: Gfortran module definition

Hi xwb,

I am using this module in a main program via the USE statement, I should have mentioned this, sorry.

RE: Gfortran module definition

Does variable1.f95 contain the program?

If it doesn't, you have to add the file to the compile/link line

RE: Gfortran module definition

Oh really need to go beyond scalars, that declaration is a bit ridiculous.

You need your own type definitions (like C structs) and collect related variables...instead of all those common sufixes you are using.

RE: Gfortran module definition

Hi salgerman,

yes you're probably right. However, the data definitions are the least of my problems currently. I'd just like to get something working

RE: Gfortran module definition

Baby steps, baby steps...

module myvars_mod
implicit none
integer i, j, k
end module myvars_mod

program main
use myvars_mod
implicit none
j = 3
write(*,*) "j = ", j
end program main

Start with something like that; then, move the module to another file, etc.

RE: Gfortran module definition

Thanks salgerman, I'll try this.

RE: Gfortran module definition

I have gotten the same type errors when using code::blocks. then I just gave the command directly in Dos to gfortran having nothing to do with code::blocks and then mine worked.

like i use
gfortran -c modulename.f95
gfortran main program.f95 modulename.o

It also worked in directly at dos prompt BUT NOT in code;;blocks when
put them both in the same file with the module part first( though don't know whether that is really necessary) with the single

gfortran main program.f95

RE: Gfortran module definition

Thanks zmth, I'll try what you suggest. Despite contributions from others none of which worked I might have a chance now.
