I disagree completely. I assume the idea of -fdec-pad-with-spaces is to
accomodate some old dec fortran code. The only reason to use some other
character is if someone is writing new dec fortran code, which is implying
encouraging people to be writing non standard conforming code.
Even if it is conforming in the sense that it is processor dependent you are
encouraging people to create new non portable code across compilers. Please
just stay consistent with Intel.
So do you prefer to always use ' ' instead of '\0', or decide based on -fdec
without a separate option controlling that?
Keep current default of '\0' and use ' ' when -fdec given.
