Re: [patch, libfortran] PR44931 For INPUT_UNIT, INQUIRE NAME= should not return "stdin"

Dear Jerry, Dave, and Kai,

Dave and Kai: I have CCed you as I have a question regarding MinGW/Cygwin.

Kai, Dave: The idea is that INQUIRE returns for stdin, stdout, and
stderr a "filename", which can be used to '(re)open' ([re]associate) a
Fortran I/O unit number with those standard I/O "streams". (Non
normative note in the standard: "the value [for NAME=] returned [by
"INQUIRE(UNIT=...,NAME=...)"] shall be suitable for use as the value of
the file-name-expr in the FILE= specifier in an OPEN statement.")

Under Unix, ttynam should roughly do this, but I fear it might not work
under Windows - in particular under MinGW(.org,64). Or does it?

Would it be an option to use conout$, conin$ and conerr$ for those? I
think on MinGW, libgfortran (io/unix.c) uses them directly (well conerr$
= conout$) while on cygwin those are mapped to /dev/con{in,out,err}. At
least for MinGW this seems to be required as Windows does not seem to
have a tty concept. For Cygwin the Unix approach should work.

I think you need to guard the use of ttyname by


Besides, I wonder whether using "" as string is better than using the
default std{in,out,err} in case ttyname fails. (This happens for
instance if the standard I/O redirected to a file or pipe.)

Otherwise, the patch looks fine to me.
