(j3.2006) Suggest addition from interp F08/0061
Mon Jan 27 18:39:30 EST 2014
This note is suggesting that the processor might do a bad job (from the point of
view of people who want good performance). I don't think we want to encourage
Besides which, unless both the dummy and actual have the TARGET attribute, the
processor is free to use copy-in/copy-out anyway. Which makes the note not just
"recommending bad practice" but "seriously misleading to boot".
This note does not belong in the standard.

In 12-006Ar1, There was a suggested edit for a future revision:
If an actual argument is not simply contiguous and the
corresponding dummy argument is an assumed-shape array with the
CONTIGUOUS attribute, the processor might use the so-called
copy-in/copy-out argument passing mechanism to assure the
contiguity of the dummy argument."
Is it out of bounds to consider this, with whatever revised wordsmithing
This was gone from 13-006A. The whole interp was gone from 13-006Ar1
(because it had been incorporated into Corrigendum 2).
