From:      Stan Whitlock
Subject:   J3 Fortran interp letter ballot #18 - due 23-Mar-2009
Date: 2009 February 23

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.

12 Fortran interpretations are currently "Passed by J3 meeting" after
J3 meeting #187.  This is the letter ballot phase to go from "Passed
by J3 meeting" to "Passed by J3 letter ballot".

Some of these interps contain notes about fixes that have already or
should possibly go into F2008.  These notes are not part of the ballot -
they are information to /interp and the editor about possible F2008

The following Fortran interpretations are being balloted:

Yes  No   Number    Title

---  ---  F03/0063  Procedure pointers in BLOCK DATA program
---  ---  F03/0064  Recursive declaration of procedure interfaces
---  ---  F03/0065  Relational equivalence
---  ---  F03/0071  Subroutine/function ambiguity in generics

---  ---  F03/0112  Attributes allowed for dummy arguments in
                              defined assignments
---  ---  F03/0119  Elemental procedures and deferred length character
---  ---  F03/0122  When do objects of sequence derived type have the
                               same type?
---  ---  F03/0125  Definitions of EXTENDS_TYPE_OF and SAME_TYPE_AS
---  ---  F03/0126  References to VOLATILE variables in pure procedures
---  ---  F03/0127  Duration of procedure execution
---  ---  F03/0128  Subobjects in namelist output
---  ---  F03/0129  C_LOC of character substrings

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
