Abstract:

The purpose of the Validation Summary Report VSR is to identify individual FORTRAN Language elements whose implementation does not conform to the Language specifications defined in American Standard FORTRAN, X3.9-1966. The Validation Summary Report is prepared by analyzing the results of running the FORTRAN Compiler Validation System FCVS. The FORTRAN Compiler Validation System consists of audit routines containing features of American Standard FORTRAN, their related data, and an Executive Routine which prepares the audit routines for compilation. Each audit routine is a FORTRAN program which includes many tests and supporting procedures indicating the result of the tests. The testing of a compiler in a particular hardwareoperating system environment is accomplished by compiling and executing each audit routine. The report produced by each routine tells whether the compiler passed or failed the tests in the routine. If the compiler rejects some Language elements by terminating compilation, giving fatal diagnostic messages, or terminating execution abnormally, then the test containing the code the compiler was unable to process is deleted. The audit routine is compiled again and execution is repeated. The compilation Listings and the output reports of the audit routines constitute the raw data from which the members of the Federal COBOL Compiler Testing Service produce a Validation Summary Report.
