Re: [PATCH, Fortran] pad char to int conversions with spaces instead of zeros (legacy)
Before delving into the code to make changes to handle the case when
passing a variable into transfer instead of a literal I revised the the
test cases. The results indicate to me that this patch as originally
intended is erroneous.
When a character literal is assigned to character variable e.g.
character(len=8) :: a
a = 'ab'
The value is padded with spaces.
So any variable passed into the transfer statement will already be
padded with spaces. So the easiest solution is to pad with spaces when a
character literal is passed in instead of zeros as is currently the case.
