Continuation lines

(OP)
I have the following line of code...

CODE --> fortran

write(6,201) i, TIME, DTIME, CorM, CorR, CorL, accL + CorL, fluxM, corM / solmass 

Due to it's length (and as an experiment in the use of continuation lines to confirm my understanding) I tried to spread this over two lines.

I have tried this...

CODE --> fortran

write(6,201) i, TIME, DTIME, CorM, CorR, CorL, &
            & accL + CorL, fluxM, corM / solmass 

...with the ampersands...
  • one character away from the first/last character
  • at column 73 (first one) and column 6 (second one)
I have also tried this...

CODE --> fortran

write(6,201) i, TIME, DTIME, CorM, CorR, CorL, &
                accL + CorL, fluxM, corM / solmass 

With the ampersand being
  • at 73
  • just after the final character
  • at a distance from the final character (to keep things consistent and pretty)
No matter what I do I now get this error message...

CODE -->

283 |             write(6,201) i, TIME, DTIME, CorM, CorR, CorL, &
      |                                                            1
Error: Expected expression in WRITE statement at (1) 

I have just undertaken a fresh install of GNU Fortran, with the --version being reported as 11.1.0

Anyone any ideas where I am going wrong?

RE: Continuation lines

What file extension did you use? Normally .f and .for assume fixed format.
