In order to reduce the wear and tear on my fingers I have decided that I need to type less. Consequently for me it's no more comments in source (I never read them anyway), no more mixed case keywords and names (saves pressing SHIFT), back to fixed source form (no need for all that extraneous white space - annoyances about IDE smart indenting behaviour become a thing of the past) and use of the statement termination character and continuations in preference to starting new lines (this will also save paper when I print my source out).
Unfortunately ifort won't play ball.

What's that? Do I have a bit too much spare time on my hands at the moment? Why yes I do as a matter of fact... how did you guess??
