Severity Levels - Editorial

1. Minor editorial (less than 10 lines altered).2. Significant editorial (up to a page altered) with no technical change.3. Major editorial (up to a chapter altered) with no technical change.

severity levels technical 1
Severity Levels – Technical (1)
  • 3. Very minor technical change.
  • An example is adding the optional argument KIND to IACHAR.
  • Minor technical change.
  • An example is changing type-bound generics to be sets of specific named type-bound procedures.
  • 5. Technical change likely to need more than two J3 meetings to develop.An example is reallocation of allocatable arrays.

6. Technical change likely to need more than a year to develop. The modules and allocatable TRs are examples.7. Technical change likely to need more than 2 years to develop. The IEEE TR is an example.8. Technical change likely to need more than 3 years to develop. Interfacing with C and the OO features are examples.

parameterized modules
Parameterized modules

Provide a facility whereby a module or subprogram can be developed in a generic form, and then applied to any appropriate type.

A generic module is a template or pattern for generating specific instances.

It has "generic parameters" but is otherwise structurally similar to a nongeneric module. A generic parameter can be a type, a data object, a procedure, a generic interface, a nongeneric module, or a generic module.

parameterized modules examples
Parameterized modulesexamples

Module with type having at least a specified component module LinkedLists ( MyType ) type :: MyType type(myType), pointer :: Next! "next" component is required. ! Type is allowed to have other components, and TBPs. end type MyType ....

Module with type having separately-specified kind parameter module LinkedLists ( MyType, ItsKind ) type :: MyType(itsKind) integer, kind :: itsKind end type MyType integer, kind :: ItsKind


The BITS type has values that are contiguous, ordered sequences of bits. The bit_size is the number of bits in the sequence.

A processor shall provide BITS sizes with bit_size values corresponding to the storage sizes of each of the INTEGER kinds provided, as well as the storage sizes of twice and four times the size of the default INTEGER storage size.

Each provided bit_size is characterized by a value for a type parameter called the kind type parameter. The kind type parameter is of type default integer. The kind type parameter of a BITS object is returned by the intrinsic inquiry function KIND. The number of bits of a BITS object is returned by the intrinsic function BIT_SIZE. The intrinsic function SELECTED_BITS_KIND returns a kind value based on the specified number of bits.

bits operations
BITS operations

The .and., .or., .xor., and .not. operators are defined for BITS operands. The computations are bitwise operations. The result of the expression evaluation is of type BITS. If the operands are of unequal bit_size, the smaller is padded on the left with zero bits before the operation is performed.

The .eq., .ne., .lt., .le., .gt., .ge., ==, /=, <, <=, >, and >= operators are defined for BITS operands. If the operands are of unequal KIND, the smaller is padded on the left with zero bits before the operation is performed. Operands A and B are equal if their corresponding bits are the same, and are unequal otherwise.

If A and B are unequal, and the leftmost unequal corresponding bit of A is 1 and of B is 0, then A > B, otherwise A < B.

bits input output
BITS Input/Output

The format specifiers for BITS objects are I, B, O, and Z. For output, if the .d part of the Bw.d, Ow.d, or Zw.d specifier is omitted, the value assumed for d is >= 1 and large enough to represent the bits in the I/O list item excluding leading 0 bits.

For the I format specifier, the object value is interpreted as an unsigned base 10 integer. For input using the B, O, and Z edit descriptors, the character string shall consist of binary, octal, or hexadecimal digits in the respective input field. For input using the I format, the input character string shall consist of an unsigned decimal integer. For list directed output, the format used is Zw.d where d is (bit_size of the I/O list item + 3)/4 and w = d+1.

For list directed input, hexadecimal constants are valid for BITS I/O list items.

bits intrinsic functions
BITS Intrinsic Functions

Some existing intrinsic functions, especially those dealing with

boz-literal-constants, are extended to deal with variables of type BITS.

Some new intrinsic functions are introduced to deal with such things as shifting, masking, merging and counting the number of leading and trailing zero bits.
