Subj:   J3 Fortran interp letter ballot #14 - due 8-Oct-2007



Enclosed in the next 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 #181.  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


---   ---   F03/0092   Procedure characteristics and unlimited


---   ---   F03/0093   Allocatable array on intrinsic assignment with

                        scalar expr

---   ---   F03/0094   Final subroutine and VALUE attribute

---   ---   F03/0095   Bounds remapped pointer assignment and


---   ---   F03/0097   Blanks as separators in NAMELIST input

---   ---   F03/0098   Does allocate with source= define subcomponents?

---   ---   F03/0099   Clause 16 does not account for volatile variable

---   ---   F03/0100   Error in field width for special cases of signed

                        INFINITY output

---   ---   F03/0101   Is UDDTIO output suitable for namelist and

                        list-directed input


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
