[Patch, Fortran] PR35203 - Fix VALUE + OPTIONAL handling for pass-by-value arguments
Thu Mar 21 18:02:00 GMT 2013
using VALUE, gfortran passes the arguments by value.* That works well,
except if VALUE is combined with OPTIONAL. Currently, "call foo(0)" and
"call foo()" are indistinguishable.
With this patch, a hidden argument is added which includes the present
information. I think that's the least intrusive version which also has
the performance advantage of continuing to use pass-by-value semantics.
Build and regtested on x86-64-gnu-linux.
OK for the trunk?
PS: At some point, we need to handle VALUE with arrays, derived types
and class. For those, one should pass by reference, doing a copy in. In
that case, using the NULL-pointer check for present() should work. (PR
* Except for character. (Note: value+optional for characters currently
fails with an ICE, also tracked at PR 49802.)
