Re: [Patch, Fortran] CO_BROADCAST for derived types with allocatable components

Paul Richard Thomas
Hi Sandro,

This patch looks fine to me. I have a question about the comment:
"This code is obviously added because the finalizer is not trusted to
free all memory."
'obviously'? Not to me :-( Maybe you can expand on this?

As to the stat and errmsg: Leave them for the time being. However, an
attempt will have to be made to implement F2018 "16.6 Collective
subroutines". I don't know enough about the coarrays implementation to
be able to help you about detecting these conditions. Maybe Tobias
Burnus can help?

OK to commit.


PS Sometime before very long, something will have to be done about the
exponential code bloat that structure_alloc_comps. The more users that
there are for it the tougher it is going to get!
