188.8.131.52 Variables for Fortran Indentation
Several additional variables control how Fortran indentation works:
- Extra indentation within each level of ‘do’ statement (default 3).
- Extra indentation within each level of ‘if’, ‘select case’, or
‘where’ statements (default 3).
- Extra indentation within each level of ‘structure’, ‘union’,
‘map’, or ‘interface’ statements (default 3).
- Extra indentation for bodies of continuation lines (default 5).
- In Fortran 77, a numbered ‘do’ statement is ended by any statement
with a matching line number. It is common (but not compulsory) to use a
‘continue’ statement for this purpose. If this variable has a
nil value, indenting any numbered statement must check for a
‘do’ that ends there. If you always end ‘do’ statements with
a ‘continue’ line (or if you use the more modern ‘enddo’),
then you can speed up indentation by setting this variable to
nil (the default).
- If this is
t, indenting an ‘endif’ (or ‘enddo’
statement moves the cursor momentarily to the matching ‘if’ (or
‘do’) statement to show where it is. The default is
- Minimum indentation for Fortran statements when using fixed form
continuation line style. Statement bodies are never indented by less than
this. The default is 6.
- Minimum indentation for Fortran statements for tab format continuation line
style. Statement bodies are never indented by less than this. The
default is 8.

indentation of comments.
