As the slave of duty, being in possession of unimpeached

credentials I must perforce cast a ballot.

 

As the nominal Sun representative I should cast a vote consistent with

Sun's comments to this august body.  Although I should posit

that Sun reserves the right to disavow this ballot.

 

The following Fortran interpretations are being balloted:


 
Yes  No   Number    Title
 
--- Y---  F03/0063  Procedure pointers in BLOCK DATA program
                              units
--- Y---  F03/0064  Recursive declaration of procedure interfaces
--- N---  F03/0065  Relational equivalence
--- Y---  F03/0071  Subroutine/function ambiguity in generics
 
--- Y---  F03/0112  Attributes allowed for dummy arguments in
                              defined assignments
--- Y---  F03/0119  Elemental procedures and deferred length character
                               components
--- Y---  F03/0122  When do objects of sequence derived type have the
                               same type?
--- Y---  F03/0125  Definitions of EXTENDS_TYPE_OF and SAME_TYPE_AS
--- Y---  F03/0126  References to VOLATILE variables in pure procedures
--- Y---  F03/0127  Duration of procedure execution
--- Y---  F03/0128  Subobjects in namelist output
--- Y---  F03/0129  C_LOC of character substrings
 
F03/0065  The value of A < B should require the computation of A and B as coded and the comparison of their
 computed values.  Saying that "all possible values" refers to mathematical values permits unnecessary
mathematical rewriting which destroys carefully coded floating point computations.  That isn't the
interpretation we want.
