Table 16.3 lists a set of restricted specific functions.
Some of the specific functions have the same names as
the corresponding generic functions, namely CHAR, ICHAR,
INT, LGE, LGT, LLE, LLT, AND REAL.  Is there a way to
access these specific functions?  Would the language be
changed if they were not available as specific

The definition of REAL is probably a mistake.  In
FORTRAN 66, the REAL instrinsic was the complement of
AIMAG.  Its argument had to be of type COMPLEX, which
is our default complex.
