Description mcdonald 2002-04-18 13:26:01 UTC
A one-dimensional array assigned values by a namelist read
statement receives those values in the wrong array elements
when the namelist input contains an array assignment with
(1) an array subscript and
(2) more than one repeat count specifier with dissimilar

I have produced the same incorrect result using g77 3.1,
f2c, and g77 under cygwin/Win2000.  Other Fortran
compilers not using f2c's library (such as Lahey Fortran
95 ver.6.1 under RH Linux 7.2) yield the correct result.

Note - this bug is similar to but not the same as the
namelist repeat count bug fixed 1999-jun-27; from
www.netlib.org f2c "changes" list:
  Sun Jun 27 22:05:47 EDT 1999
   libf2c.zip, libi77: rsne.c: fix bug in namelist input:
  a misplaced increment could cause wrong array elements
  to be assigned; e.g.,
  "&input k(5)=10*1 &end" assigned k(5) and k(15 .. 23).

gcc 2.96

RedHat Linux 7.2

Compile this 10-line Fortran77 program:

      program testnl
      dimension a(10)
      namelist /nl/ a
      data a / 10 * 0.0 /
      write(6,*) a

Now run the program with this input data,

&nl a(2) = 3*1.0, 2*2.0, 3*3.0 /

and you will probably see this incorrect result:

  0.  1.  1.  1.  2.  3.  3.  0.  0.  0.

The correct result should be

  0.  1.  1.  1.  2.  2.  3.  3.  3.  0.

State-Changed-Why: Fails at least from GCC-2.95.2 onwards.
    Added test suite entry 6367.f for it.

 Thanks for fixing this bug.  I haven't tried out the new code yet, but I
 assume I can download a gcc 3.3 distro from some convenient source.
 I hope the fixes propagate to netlib soon.
