Fortran Monthly Call: February 2021

Dear all,
It’s again time to organise our next monthly call which will be in the week of February 22-26; 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 February 21, 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,



I’ll note that J3 is meeting February 22-23 (and again March 1-2).


I want to put strings and the OS module on the agenda for stdlib. Especially with perspective of using the string list, string type and OS functions in fpm where they are much needed. For fpm in particular I have no concrete points (yet).

We will most likely be able to talk about a localized fortran-lang webpage and some general strategies for translating and reviewing multilingual contributions as well.

Also, a short wrap-up on our GSoC application might be suitable item for the agenda.


I agree, let’s discuss how we can all promote Fortran-lang + GSoC to prospective students.

If there’s time after strings and OS in stdlib, let’s also discuss the proposal for clamp and possible implementations.

I would like to discuss my proposal for Default Modern Fortran flags in fpm, if time allows.

I’ll have to leave the call early, so I was wondering if we could change order in agenda as follows:

1) GSoC
2) Fortran-lang website
3) stdlib
4) fpm

Yes, sure @certik. Any order is good for me. We can discuss it at the beginning of the call!

Perfect. I would also like to propose this to discuss:
