I am porting system made on VAX in Fortran 77 to Alpha system both running OpenVMS. Since I have very little background in Fortran, I seek help from experienced developers, I am getting severe problems with floating point numbers as code contain numerous statements like
Integer *2 X(2)
Real *4 Y
this results in illegal floating point number in Alpha, and I cannot even trap the error that crashes the program. Does anybody have idea how to solve this problem. I badly need some help.
