In the following program, pointer association is not allowd.
But I can compile successfully, and get the output of random character
string whose length is 999.

I think this is wrong behavior.

program char_array_const
  implicit none
  character(len=999), pointer :: p
  character(len=12), target :: string = "test string"

  p => string
  print *, trim(p)
end program
