7.1 Old-style kind specifications

gfortran allows old-style kind specifications in declarations. These look like:

           TYPESPEC*k x,y,z

where TYPESPEC is a basic type, and where k is a valid kind number for that type. The statement then declares x, y and z to be of type TYPESPEC with kind k. In other words, it is equivalent to the standard conforming declaration

           TYPESPEC(k) x,y,z
