BUG: Incorrect F2560 with Adjustable Sized Arrays and /4Yb PSS ID Number: Q108287 Article last modified on 02-01-1994



The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft FORTRAN PowerStation for MS-DOS, version 1.0


Compiling an adjustable sized array with extended error handling (that is, /4Yb) that uses an expression for a bound, incorrectly produces the following error:

error F2560: (array_name) : array bound used intrinsic call


Do not use extended error handling when compiling adjustable sized arrays that are dimensioned with an expression.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FORTRAN PowerStation version 1.0 for MS-DOS. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


The sample program below demonstrates the problem when compiled with FORTRAN PowerStation:

Sample Code

$debug SUBROUTINE TEST(N,X) INTEGER N REAL X((N+1)/2) ! Expression dimensions adjustable array X X((N+1)/2)=1 RETURN END
