Though I use C++ and use to define classes I have avoided to use it in Fortran up to now.
In any case, if one opens the Visual Studio help and type 'this' in the index page a number of entries are located.
If I open the Intel Visual fortran compiler help (IVF16 last update) and type "THIS" or "this" in the index page nothing comes up.
Where can I find a description of the THIS object/parameter/etc. in the Intel Fortran documentation ?
Fortran does not have something called THIS. In Fortran terms, this (!) would be the "passed object" to a type-bound procedure. Programmers will often call that argument THIS for convention's sake, though the language allows you to call it anything you want.
Look up type-bound procedures for more info.
