Bitwise AND problem
« on: August 03, 2012, 07:26:13 PM »
   Program AND_TEST
C   --------------------------------

C   ERRCODE = IAND (CSR,O'003')   


The above f77 program gives the compile error (referring to CSR.AND.O'003'): "The arguments to this bitwise intrinsic or operator must be the same size".
(Same message with either of the two "ERRCODE=" statements)

According to my reading of the F77 Reference Manual, the operands should already be the same size:
"An integer constant requires one numeric storage unit (four bytes)." (pg 16)
"INTEGER*4 is the default for INTEGER" (pg 38).
I also have INTEGER*4 selected as the Default Integer Size in Project Options|FORTRAN|Compatibility.
But the only way I can get rid of the error message is to change "INTEGER CSR" to "INTEGER*8 CSR"

Is this a documentation error or am I missing something?
If I want to do similar bitwise operations on other integer sizes, am I restricted to using a variable as the other operand?

(The compile command from absoft tools is :
f95 -c -nowdir -O2 -f77_compat -m32 -march=host -o "./Release/TEST_AND.o" "../xix_sources/_TESTPGMS/TEST_AND.f"")

BOZ constants are always 64-bits as there is no way to apply a KIND to them. Here are two work-arounds:

      ERRCODE ='003',4)
      ERRCODE = IAND (CSR,int(O'003',4))

Thanks for the information.  The example was from legacy Vax Fortran 77 code, apparently older than this restriction.
