I should bring this up on comp.lang.fortran to see what the general community thinks of all this.

I suspect you'll get the standard "You invoked an intrinsic function with a number outside the model for integers, so you are getting processor defined behavior (i.e., you just started WW III)."

Nevertheless, I think that Scott did the right thing - you'll bet there are REAL EXISTIERENDE compilers that give different answers; besides, as Scott emphasized, it's an important question in the Fortran-C interface definition that's part of Fortran 2003.


I'll expect at least an interpretation request coming out of this - may be more.

Thanks, Scott, for your perseverance.
