FORTRAN 77 Language Reference

Rules and Restrictions

After the first eight characters, blanks are ignored, and uppercase and lowercase are equivalent, as in FORTRAN text.

Because it is a comment, a directive cannot be continued, but you can have many C$PRAGMA lines, one after the other, as needed.

If a comment satisfies the above syntax, it is expected to contain one or more directives recognized by the compiler; if it does not, a warning is issued.
