(j3.2006) Adventures in sections of constant arrays

A simpler explanation could be that the Cray compiler has inlining enabled by default and there were no resulting calls in the main program, other than to the formatted write library routine, and EXIT.  The ?problem? subroutines don?t do anything.  However, suppressing inlining still results in a working code. 

Other than the original definition of the named constant hello, I don?t see any definitions of hello (either direct or via an associated dummy argument) in the program.
