Fortran Monthly Call: December 2020

Dear all,
It’s again time to organize our next monthly call which will be in the week of December 14-18; please see the following doodle poll to mark your availability:

The final time slot will be selected and announced on the evening (European time) of Sunday December 13. Please complete the poll before then.

If there are specific topics or issues you would like to raise, even if you are unable to attend the call, please post them in the thread here.
As usual, we will record this call and make it available online.

All the best,



Thanks for organizing the call. I want to put some fpm related topics on the agenda:


December 14, 2019 marks the date @milancurcic created the stdlib repository. This monthly call will mark the first “birthday” of the project, meaning it is a great opportunity to reflect upon what has been achieved and where we are headed.


I happen to be writing a blog post right now about my perspective on exactly that.

@awvwgk no worries. We’ll see you in the January call.

The video is now up:


Some interesting and fruitful conversations, thanks for uploading :+1:.

I had a quick go to see if I could put together a fpm package for stdlib, you can see the result here:

Instead of a tarball (unsupported in fpm currently), it’s simply a separate repo which is generated automatically by the CI.

Needs a bit of testing, but the included tests run (on Ubuntu) and it seems to work okay as a fpm dependency.

For me at least, this overcomes a small hurdle to playing around with stdlib by simplifying the build procedure.


I would be ok with this approach too. Note that this approach may be also interesting for users who don’t want to rely on fypp locally, but still want to use stdlib in their project through git tools (e.g., git submodule)
