`PRODUCT`

— Product of array elements*Description*:- Multiplies the elements of
`ARRAY`along dimension`DIM`if the corresponding element in`MASK`is`TRUE`

. *Standard*:- Fortran 95 and later
*Class*:- Transformational function
*Syntax*:-
`RESULT = PRODUCT(ARRAY[, MASK])`

`RESULT = PRODUCT(ARRAY, DIM[, MASK])`

*Arguments*:-
`ARRAY`Shall be an array of type `INTEGER`

,`REAL`

or`COMPLEX`

.`DIM`(Optional) shall be a scalar of type `INTEGER`

with a value in the range from 1 to n, where n equals the rank of`ARRAY`.`MASK`(Optional) shall be of type `LOGICAL`

and either be a scalar or an array of the same shape as`ARRAY`. *Return value*:- The result is of the same type as
`ARRAY`.If

`DIM`is absent, a scalar with the product of all elements in`ARRAY`is returned. Otherwise, an array of rank n-1, where n equals the rank of`ARRAY`, and a shape similar to that of`ARRAY`with dimension`DIM`dropped is returned. *Example*:-
PROGRAM test_product INTEGER :: x(5) = (/ 1, 2, 3, 4 ,5 /) print *, PRODUCT(x) ! all elements, product = 120 print *, PRODUCT(x, MASK=MOD(x, 2)==1) ! odd elements, product = 15 END PROGRAM
