WHILE statement

For compatibility with FTN77, FTN95 offers an alternative WHILE statement. Its general form is

WHILE (logical expression) DO
. . . .

The WHILE-block may contain any executable Fortran statements. WHILE-blocks may be nested within each other or within IF-, ELSE-, and ELSEIF-blocks and/or DO statements. The rules of nesting are the same as those for the IF construct.

An ENDWHILE statement can be labelled but may only be referenced from within the WHILE block.


J = 0
 I = LIST(I)
  J = J+1
