BYTE statement

BYTE statement

Hi everybody,
I just installet the intel fortran compiler 7.0 in redhat 8.0. I am developping a program where there is several "BYTE" type variables. The ifc looks that it doesn't reconize this statemenet. Is there any additional option or library to add to reconize BYTE statement?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Use INTEGER(1) instead - this has the same meaning as BYTE.

Thanks for your aswert, but in my program I use byte with character variables too in the following way:

byte_type(n) = CHAR(integer)
byte_type(n) = 'character'

What do you suggest to do to substitute these lines?
Thanks in advance,


The second line doesn't make sense - it would be illegal even if BYTE were supported.

If you want the integer value of the character, use:

byte_type(n) = integer
byte_type(n) = ICHAR('character')

Note that in the first case, you may get integer overflow depending on the value.
