kind (x) has type default integer and value equal to the kind
type parameter value of x.
*end quote*

p. 161 from Metcalf et al (2007) Fortran 95/2003 explained.

% cat tmp.f90
        program z

        integer, parameter :: dp = kind(1.d0)
        real(kind=dp) :: inside(5), outside(5)


        end program z
% g95 -L/usr/local/lib tmp.f90
% ./a.out

Kind 8 is (on most arch) 8-byte real, i.e. typically
double precision.
