I have inherited some code from 2 years ago that does not work with 6.6 (What was the version then? 6.5?). I don?t know if the author was experimenting with EQUIVALENCE and if the code did work with the previous version or not. Consider a file containing a variable named alfa. The following code does not work with 6.6, I have to use alfa (instead of beta) at NAMELIST and then EQUIVALENCE is not needed. Did this work with some of the previous versions? Is there any way to have alfa in the file and beta in the NAMELIST?
REAL(8) alfa, beta
Open the file
