There appears to be a line length limit with the * output format, which does not occur with some other compilers.
Often I will quickly write a variable dump to the screen or a file, that I will later import into excel for further analysis.
* is very quick and easy, as you don't have to think of the possible range of values that could occur, or the mixture of variable types.
However, with ifort, "write (*,*) x,y,z,a,b,c" can result in the output record being over two lines.
I think that also "write (98,*) x,y,z,a,b,c" might have this problem, but certainly redirecting screen output to a file has this problem.
Having to merge lines in excel defeats the purpose of a quick review !
Is there a way of removing this line length restriction ?
