FORTRAN 77 Language Reference


In some cases, the DO variable can overflow as a result of an increment that is performed prior to testing it against the final value. When this happens, your program has an error, and neither the compiler nor the runtime system detects it. In this situation, though the DO variable wraps around, the loop can terminate properly.

If there is a jump into the range of a DO loop from outside its range, a warning is issued, but execution continues anyway.

When the jump is from outside to the terminal statement that is CONTINUE, and this statement is the terminal statement of several nested DO loops, then the most inner DO loop is always executed.
