Subject:   J3 Fortran interp letter ballot #23 - due 25-Mar-2011
Date: 2011 February 18

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.

6 Fortran interpretations are currently "Passed by J3 meeting" after
J3 meeting #194.  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

---  ---  F03/0124   Definition is poorly defined
---  ---  F08/0050   Ordering requirements on definition of
                            specification functions
---  ---  F08/0051   Pure procedure arguments with VALUE
---  ---  F08/0052   Private type-bound procedures
---  ---  F08/0053   Restrictions on generic declarations, generic
---  ---  F08/0054   Requirements for needing an explicit interface

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, PDT, Friday, 25-Mar-2011, in order to be counted.

Thanks                         /Stan
