|14.00||Further coarray features
(66 KB PDF file)
In February 2008, several coarray feature were removed from the draft standard with the understanding that once the new standard was completed, they would be the subject of a Technical Report. Last year, WG5 decided that while the overall size of the addition should not be increased, the choice of features should be reviewed. This choice, in the form of requirements, was made during the June meeting, and will be explained in this talk.
|14.20||Fortran addendum to the TR on Vulnerabilities in
Programming Languages (190 KB PDF file)
The second edition of the TR has undergone balloting at the SC22 level and has been returned to WG23 to consider the comments submitted. Meanwhile the Fortran annex has been balloted within WG5 and gathered a large number of suggested changes. This talk gives a summary of the current situation.
|14.50||Other news from WG5 (48 KB PDF file)
John will talk about the completion of the TS on further interoperability with C, the completion of the first corrigendum to Fortran 2008 and WG5's strategic plans for the coming years.
|15.00||The role of mathematical equivalence in Fortran
(260 KB PDF file)
The mathematical equivalence of Fortran expressions has been fundamental to the language since the start but a recent interpretation has shown up a difference between computational and mathematical expressions which had gone unnoticed in the standard for years. What, if anything, should be done in the next revision of the standard?
|15.30||Developments in the standardization process
(62 KB PDF file)
John attended the SC22 meeting in Geneva, 10-11 September, both as WG5 convener and Head of Delegation for the UK. He found the meeting unusually interesting. It allowed remote access using a very successful audio and visual system, which may prove very useful also for WG5 work. Various alterations were considered in the way standards are prepared and documents stored.
