Re: [PATCH, Fortran] documentation for FTELL, GETLOG, HOSTNM instrinsics

How about chaning "...forms; however, only one..." to "forms. Only one form can be..."?

Thanks; that does sound better. There are a few other intrinsics that fit this pattern; I'm intending to eventually push those into a common wording for documenting the restriction.

I suggest to omit the parentheses here, and make "stores in" and
"return a blank string" more consistent.  (I assume that also in
the latter case, that blank string is going to be returned in LOGIN?)

Yup; I agree.

Thanks much,
