The DUMMY Statement

The DUMMY statement has the form

       DUMMY name,name,name...

and indicates that the variables named are not real variables, but instead are to be used in building up the description of a new type.

Note that in EQUIVALENCE and INTERLEAVE statements, dummy variables may only be linked to other dummy variables. Note also that the dummy variables declared with a DUMMY statement are not to be confused with other types of dummy variables in FORTRAN, such as in a DEFINE or FLOW statement.
