[J3] Pure Procedures in 20-007

Hi Reuben,

The interp is against Fortran 2018, which uses the term "pure".  Simple procedures are new in F202x.  When the edtis are applied to 202x (the 20-007 in the files for this meeting folder) pure should be changed to simple.  But for edits to correct F2018, the word "pure" should be used.

Subject: [J3] Pure Procedures in 20-007


In 20-007 on 15.7 Pure Procedures, second bullet says "a pure intrinsic procedure (16.1)"

But 16.1 first para does not have "pure" as one of the eight classes. It has "simple" instead.

Furthermore, in "15.8 Simple procedures", first bullet says "an intrinsic procedure (16.1), if it is specified to be simple"

To be perfectly consistent, should the second bullet on 15.7 Pure Procedure also says the same thing?

I wasn't sure if this would need to be fixed.
