Compiler directives supported by Flang

A list of non-standard directives supported by Flang

  • !dir$ fixed and !dir$ free select Fortran source forms. Their effect persists to the end of the current source file.

  • !dir$ ignore_tkr [[(TKRDMAC)] dummy-arg-name]... in an interface definition disables some semantic checks at call sites for the actual arguments that correspond to some named dummy arguments (or all of them, by default). The directive allow actual arguments that would otherwise be diagnosed as incompatible in type (T), kind (K), rank (R), CUDA device (D), or managed (M) status. The letter (A) is a shorthand for all of these, and is the default when no letters appear. The letter (C) is a legacy no-op. For example, if one wanted to call a “set all bytes to zero” utility that could be applied to arrays of any type or rank:

    subroutine clear(arr,bytes)
!dir$ ignore_tkr arr
      integer(1), intent(out) :: arr(bytes)
  end interface
