It seems a natural request then to allow a procedure to be declared BIND(F, name=”…”)   The procedure could then even live inside of a module (amusingly allowing the module to have no PUBLIC entities).

Is this unworkable for reasons that I don’t understand?   Low priority?    Or maybe a very small feature that could be put into 202y?
Every compiler I have used has syntax (usually a directive) to specify the global name of a procedure - ALIAS is often the keyword. It does sound like a small but useful feature that could be proposed for 202Y. One might quibble with the syntax suggested, but the basic idea is sound.
