Option: pointersize

Specifies the size of a ``Cray pointer'' variable to be num bytes. Default = turn-on = 4 bytes.

The pointer size is used to inform precision mismatch warnings involving pointer variables, for example when a pointer is assigned a value from an allocation routine, or passed as a subprogram parameter.
