I propose to discuss a spec template for the stdlib.

Some background:

I propose to discuss “the introduction of C/C++ codes for testing Fortran codes in stdlib”.


@wclodius translated C and C++ codes of hash functions to Fortran (see this PR and in this PR for more details).

For each function, the C/C++ codes are provided in the test environment, and are used to generate hashs from random keys. Then the hashs generated by the Fortran codes are checked against the ones generated from the original C/C++ codes.

I would like to discuss the Intrinsics PR:

If there’s time, I’d like to get feedback on the naming of getline proposed for stdlib_io.

Here is the current agenda for today:

1) fpm docs (@awvwgk)

* stdlib
1) Spec template (@milancurcic)
2) Introduction of C/C++ codes for testing Fortran codes  (@wclodius/@jeremie.vandenplas)
3) getline (@milancurcic)

1) Fortran intrinsics (@certik)

Aren’t we meeting now? The Zoom app says we start in 1h, but I think the above information says we start right now. @milancurcic do you mind updating the Zoom invite to start now?

The Zoom info says 8:00 PM UTC, but the time listed before that is 1900 UTC, so is it now or in an hour?

I apologize, I scheduled for an hour later by mistake. I’ll start it in a minute.


Okay, we’re starting :slight_smile:

Sorry for the delay with the video upload. Here’s the recording.
