IDENTIFY and RANGE were in Fortran 8X, and were comprehensively rejected by the Fortran community in 1988, as being too unwieldy and too complicated for the perceived benefit thereof.

In 1981, John Rice proposed RANGE variables.

These are in many respects similar to my proposal for a SECTION type.

I put Johns paper in the Tutorials folder, with the name Rice-1981.pdf.
