It: Writes out a new.
However if you just can't live with losing a bit of precision in your numbers then please erase your copy of this library and for God's sake start drinking decaffinated coffee.
Back to Table of Contents Interpreting the results of the test program There is a test program included with the distribution.
Almost all operating systems allow a collection of object modules to be stored in an object library sometimes known as a pre-compiled or relocatable-code library. Many systems provide what is called an optimising compiler which takes even more trouble and generates highly efficient machine code; optimised code will try to make the best possible use of fast internal registers and the compiler will analyse the source program in blocks rather than one line at a time.
At the time of writing this, this makes the biggest difference when moving XDR files between Crays and workstations such as Suns, HPs, or DECs, because by defalt the Cray Fortran compiler uses a 'single' precision of 64 bits and a 'double' precision of bits, while the Sun, HP, and DEC use a 'single' precision of 32 bits and a 'double' precision of 64 bits.
Fortran, on the other hand, is often used for jobs which consume significant amounts of computer time: in some applications, such as weather forecasting, the results would simply be of no use if they were produced more slowly. Most compilers have a number of switches or options which can be set to control how the compiler works and what additional output it produces.
