The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft FORTRAN PowerStation for MS-DOS 1.0
This article was previously published under Q102695
An attempt to compile an application may fail and Microsoft FORTRAN PowerStation may generate the following messages:
The application declares an array using an initialized INTEGER variable as an array bound and refers to that array using an INTEGER as a subscript. The compile command line includes both the -4Yb and -4Ys option switches.
The General Protection Fault occurs because the array has an illegal array bound.
Modify the source code to define the array bound in a PARAMETER statement before using it in the array declaration or declare the array using an integer constant.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FORTRAN PowerStation version 1.0 for MS-DOS. This problem has been resolved with FORTRAN PowerStation maintenance release version 1.0a for MS-DOS.
The following code example demonstrates this problem:
Sample Code 1
C Compiler options needed: -4Yb -4Ys real x(n) i = 1 x(i) = 1.0 end
The following code example demonstrates the correct method to declare an array in this manner:
Sample Code 2
C Compiler options needed: -4Yb -4Ys parameter (n = 10) real x(n) i = 1 x(i) = 1.0 end
FORTRAN PowerStation version 1.0 can be differentiated from the maintenance release version 1.0a by invoking the linker. Typing link32 | more from \F32\BIN directory will show version 2.8 for FORTRAN PowerStation version 1.0, and it will show version 1.0f for the maintenance release version 1.0a.
