Hello, all:

I want to see what the group thinks of this idea...

Instead of having to code /free and /end-free, to drop into free form and back out again, why not just let the compiler make the decision, on a line-by-line basis, depending on the presence of the "C" in the column (for C-specs)? If the "C" is there, treat the line as fixed format. If there is a blank in that column, then we are in /free format.

This would make it much easier to intermix fixed-format statements and free-form statements, as and when needed, and also would just make the code look better, as all of those (meaningless, except to the compiler) /free and /end-free statements can be eliminated.

Should we all start opening DCRs for this? :-)

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

All the best,

Mark S. Waterbury
