RMS confirmed that it would be OK - as long as libquadmath is distributed with

I hope this clarifies.

Thanks Toon,

I think we are good to go for commit. (This really is a significant contribution and should be recognized)

Many thanks to FX and Tobias.

This is certainly a major achievement; I add my thanks to FX and Tobias to yours.

Even though I might not use this feature myself (people are mighty surprised that we run weather forecasting models still in single precision - but it only takes some careful analysis of a number of "difficult" spots to do so).

However, to the Fortran community as a whole, this is a vital development, and gfortran will be praised for having 16 byte REAL (and 32 byte COMPLEX) support.
