Forcheck tuning and configuring

Tuning of the analysis and output can be performed by specifying options and applying a configuration file.


Options can be specified at the command line or in the IDE. Defaults for all options can be set. Options can be specified for the entire analysis and can be overruled for each specific source input file.

By specifying options each analysis phase and each part of Forcheck's output can be enabled or suppressed.

Accepted Fortran language extensions

FORCHECK uses a configuration file (compiler emulation file) to determine which Fortran language level, data types and language extensions should be applied for the analysis. You can activate the configuration file you want to use for the analysis. Configuration files are supplied for many compilers. You can compose configuration files with your own preferences.

In the configuration files the Fortran language level, the supported data types, the syntax extensions and default filename extensions Forcheck applies are specified. Also supported non-standard intrinsic functions and keywords for OPEN/CLOSE/INQUIRY statements are specified.

By composing a configuration file with the desired syntax extensions of all the platforms you support, you can verify the transportability of your code.


FORCHECK reports the analysis messages on the console (stdout), in the generated source code listing and in the report file. The severity level of each individual message can be adjusted, and specific messages can be suppressed.

A summary of all messages reported, source code metrics and internal table usage can be optionally be send to the console (stdout), the listing file and the report file.
