Re: [Patch, fortran] PR28585: Add Fortran 2003 NEW_LINE intrinsic function

Hi Tobias,

Sorry for this late review. Here are comments on your patch (although some doc changes are mixed with it):

The first two args to add_sym_1 determine whether the function is elemental, and whether it is allowed as an actual argument. Here, they should both be 0. Admittedly, they were not used until recently, and most functions set them wrong (but I corrected that a few hours ago).

This really is something different from your patch. I don't have an opinion on that change, but you'd want to submit it separately.

Same thing as gfortran.texi. We'd be happy to review and apply a "misc documentation changes" patch from you, but please keep things separate. Also, if you plan to change that, I think it's worthy to note that this function is implemented now (I think I remember doing it).

Probably better with "The argument shall be a scalar or array of type @code{CHARACTER}." (and not "the type...shall be... of the type CHARACTER")

As the doc said, NEW_LINE returns a scalar character of the same kind as its argument. We currently only have one character type, but we need to keep the possibility to evolve in the future. You probably want:

result = gfc_constant_result (BT_CHARACTER, e->ts.kind, &e->where);

So, here's what I suggest: please post an updated patch, taking care of the abover comments, and I'll commit it. Could you also add a testcase? (something like writing a new_line and a few other characters, and reading them back to check them)

I know the whole process may seem heavy and there's a lot to learn, but it really helps keeping the quality of the compiler code high.


PS: Since I think it's the first of your patch that I review, welcome aboard!

PPS: I'll review your out-of-bounds substring patch today or tomorrow.
