@* INTRODUCTION.
This code is intended to illustrate the use of the |write| statement.
The general structure of the code is straightforward:

@a

program main
  @<constants and variables@>
  @<mainlines@>
  stop 0
contains
  @<functions and subroutines@>
end program main

@ The first block, or \FWEB\ module, introduces the only
constant of the program, |a_constant|.

@<constants and variables@>=

  real(kind=4), parameter :: a_constant = 1.2345

@ The program itself comprises one statement only: we call subroutine
|compute| and pass |a_constant| as a parameter.

@<mainlines@>=

  call compute(a_constant)

@* Functions and Subroutines.

In this program we have defined only one subroutine. All that it
does is to print a |real(kind=4)| value on standard output.

@<functions and subroutines@>=

  subroutine compute(a)
    real(kind=4), intent(in) :: a
    write(*,*) 'a = ', a
  end subroutine compute
