Subj:   J3 Fortran interp letter ballot #13 - due 17-Aug-2007


****: due 6-Aug-2007 if possible


Enclosed in the thirteenth letter ballot on Fortran interpretations.


The rules by which we operate say:


    o   J3 votes on the answer at a J3 meeting; a simple majority

        vote marks the answer as "passed by J3 meeting".


    o   Between J3 meetings the chair of /interp sends a J3 letter

        ballot to J3 to approve interp answers that have been "passed

        by J3 meeting".  The letter ballot runs for 30 days.  Not

        voting on three of four consecutive J3 letter ballots is

        grounds to terminate J3 membership.  An interp answer passes

        by a 2/3rds vote;  a no vote must be accompanied by an

        explanation of the changes necessary to change the member's

        vote to yes.


        J3/interp reserves the right to recall an interp answer for

        more study even if the answer passes.


9 Fortran 2003 interpretations are currently "Passed by J3 meeting"

after J3 meeting #180.  This is the letter ballot phase to go from

"Passed by J3 meeting" to "Passed by J3 letter ballot".


The following Fortran interpretations are being balloted:


Yes   No    Number     Title


-Y-   ---   F03/0048   Control edit descriptors in UDDTIO

-Y-   ---   F03/0049   Separators in list-directed output

                        involving UDDTIO

-C-   ---   F03/0050   Questions about internal files


I agree with Van's vote:  In both paragraphs of the proposed edits,

"specified" should be "specifies" and "internal unit" should be

"internal file".


-Y-   ---   F03/0051   Repeat specifiers and UDDTIO

-Y-   ---   F03/0086   Elemental and BIND(C)

-Y-   ---   F03/0087   Entry names as dummy procedure arguments

-Y-   ---   F03/0088   Defined operations/assignments and


-Y-   ---   F03/0089   Interoperability of non-BIND derived types

-Y-   ---   F03/0090   Polymorphic array constructors


The text of these interpretations is attached.  Each interpretation

starts with a row of "-"s.


Please mark the above -Y- in the Yes column for "yes", -C- in the Yes

column for "yes with comment", or -N- in the No column for a "no"

answer {be sure to include your reasons with "no"} and send only the

above text {not this entire mail message} with any comments to


        j3 at j3-fortran.org


by 11:59:59PM, PST, Friday, 17-Aug-2007, in order to be counted.


    ** PLEASE NOTE **


17-Aug-2007 is the end of 30 days.  The WG5 London/J3 m181 meeting is

6-10-Aug-2007.  In order to process as many completed F2003 interps

as possible into the next F2003 Corrigendum {#3}, please try to get

your ballots posted before 6-Aug-2007.


Thanks                         /Stan
