The OPTIONS statement has the following syntax:
OPTIONS option[ option...]
where option can be any of the following:
/I4 /NOI4 /F77 /NOF77 /CHECK=BOUNDS /CHECK=NOBOUNDS
These options perform the same function as the like-named command line options. Specifying option overrides a command line option when they are the same. option must always be preceded by a slash (/).
Use the following rules when specifying an OPTIONS statement:
- The statement must be the first statement in a program unit and must precede the PROGRAM, SUBROUTINE, FUNCTION, and BLOCK DATA statements.
- option remains in effect only for the duration of the program unit in which it is defined.
