I am working on a codebase which contains a large number of include files which are used in both free-form and fixed-form source files. These include files contain continuation lines which use the following convention:
an "&" is placed on the upper line after the 72nd column, and an "&" in column 6 on the lower line as follows:
COMMON /APMISC9/ AVAIL3TC, AVAILDES, AVAILSS, AVAIL3D, AVAILSW, & & AVAILSMP, APCUSTIN
Previously this worked fine for free and fixed form but since updating to the latest Intel Visual Fortran Composer I recieve the following error:
"error #5082: Syntax error, found '&' when expecting one of: %FILL <IDENTIFIER>"
Is there a way to avoid this error without editing the source?
