(j3.2006) Adventures in sections of constant arrays

It used to be that Cray made a copy of constants to pass as actual arguments, so that if the argument was overwritten, the original constant was untouched. That still be the case for the Cray implementation.

Might it be that Cray (and maybe PGI) doesn't put constants in write-protected memory, thus allowing overwriting the constant? I know of many compilers (including Intel's for a while) that did this, and it was a classic issue further in the past.

So, it is possible, although uncommon, to get this to work.
