Declaring a variable after an ENTRY statement may cause the compiler to generate the following error message:
Make all the type declarations before all the ENTRY statements to avoid this error message.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FORTRAN PowerStation for MS-DOS, version 1.0. This problem has been resolved with FORTRAN Powerstation maintenance release version 1.0a for MS-DOS.
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 1.0f for the maintenance release version 1.0a.
Compiling the following code demonstrates the problem:
C No options required subroutine sub(x) entry suben(x) real x end C The compiler generates the following incorrect error: C error F2836: statement out of order
This error message can be avoided by moving the declaration for x above the ENTRY statement but below the subroutine statement.
