A nonpointer array occupies a sequence of contiguous storage sequences, one for each array element, in array element order.
Two or more arrays are associated when each one is associated with the same storage location. They are partially associated when part of the storage associated with one array is the same as part or all of the storage associated with another array.
Fortran 90 identified some FORTRAN 77 features to be obsolescent. Fortran 95 and Fortran 2003 deleted some Fortran 90 features, and identified some Fortran 90 language features to be obsolescent.
Fortran 2008 has also identified some earlier standard language features to be obsolescent. Features considered obsolescent may be removed from future revisions of the Fortran Standard.
Some language features, considered redundant in Fortran 90 are identified as obsolescent in Fortran 2008, Fortran 2003 and Fortran 95.
Intel® Fortran flags these features if you specify compiler option stand.
Other methods are suggested to achieve the functionality of the following obsolescent features:
If you specify compiler option f66, the EXTERNAL statement is interpreted in the way that was specified by the FORTRAN IV (FORTRAN-66) standard. This interpretation became incompatible with FORTRAN 77 and later revisions of the Fortran standard.
