Description Juergen Reuter 2009-08-10 10:11:35 UTC
It seems that not a pointer is transferred but a value in the following case.
Here is the tracking info:

gfortran -g fptr_transfer.f90 -o fptr_transfer && ./fptr_transfer
Segmentation fault (core dumped)gdb fptr_transfer core

Here is the corresponding code:
subroutine proc ()
end subroutine proc

program foo

      subroutine proc ()
      end subroutine proc
   end interface

   type :: container_t
      procedure(proc), nopass, pointer :: proc => null ()
   end type container_t

   type(container_t), target :: obj1
   type(container_t) :: obj2

   obj1%proc => proc
   call transfer_proc_ptr (obj2, obj1)


   subroutine transfer_proc_ptr (obj2, obj1)
     type(container_t), intent(out) :: obj2
     type(container_t), intent(in), target :: obj1
     call assign_proc_ptr (obj2%proc, obj1)
   end subroutine transfer_proc_ptr

   subroutine assign_proc_ptr (ptr, obj1)
     procedure(proc), pointer :: ptr
     type(container_t), intent(in), target :: obj1
     ptr => obj1%proc
   end subroutine assign_proc_ptr

end program foo

Created attachment 18335 [details]
Example file which shows the PP problem
Comment 2 janus 2009-08-10 12:46:47 UTC
Confirmed. -fdump-tree-original shows:

assign_proc_ptr (void (*<T63>) (void) * ptr, struct container_t & obj1)
  *ptr = obj1->proc;
Comment 3 janus 2009-08-10 13:41:25 UTC
Actually the part of the dump shown in comment #2 is ok. The problematic piece is this:

transfer_proc_ptr (struct container_t & obj2, struct container_t & obj1)
  assign_proc_ptr (obj2->proc, (struct container_t *) obj1);

Here the obj2->proc is missing an "&".
Comment 4 janus 2009-08-10 13:49:35 UTC
This problems seems to be similar to PR 40450.
Comment 5 janus 2009-08-10 14:14:12 UTC
This patchlet should fix it:

Comment 7 janus 2009-08-11 20:15:10 UTC
Fixed with r150665. Thanks for the report.
Comment 8 Juergen Reuter 2009-08-12 19:09:47 UTC
The fix seems not to work with the test program. 
On Linux 32 bit I get the following when compiling:
/tmp/cciQlmr1.o: In function `MAIN__':
foo.f90:(.text+0x1b): undefined reference to `proc_'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

and on MAC OS X:
Undefined symbols:
  "_proc_", referenced from:
      _proc_$non_lazy_ptr in ccJFt47G.o
ld: symbol(s) not found
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Comment 9 Juergen Reuter 2009-08-12 19:21:52 UTC
Sorry, false alarm. Had a truncated test file.
