Arrays with parameter and data statements in fortran 77

  1. Sep 20, 2006 #1
    Let's say you have an array A and a variable B (both reals). Apparently

    parameter (A = (/1.2, 3.4, .../) )

    is illegal, so you have to do

    data A /1.2, 3.4, .../

    instead. However, what if you have a statement afterwards like this?

    1 parameter (A = (/1.2, 3.4, .../) )
    2 parameter (B = A(3))

    If you change 1 to a data statement, 2 becomes illegal since you can only declare parameters with other parameters, but 1 is illegal as is. How would I declare something like this that's legal?
