B.12 Record Structures

Compaq Fortran record structures are similar to Fortran 90 derived types.

A record structure is an aggregate entity containing one or more elements. (Record elements are also called fields or components.) You can use records when you need to declare and operate on multi-field data structures in your programs.

Creating a record is a two-step process:

  1. You must define the form of the record with a multistatement structure declaration.

  2. You must use a RECORD statement to declare the record as an entity with a name. (More than one RECORD statement can refer to a given structure.)
