This post is regarding GSoC project on improving strings support in Fortran.
The requirements of the project are such that the involvement of community will be fruitful for the overall acceptance of this string library as the “go-to” library for string operations in Fortran.
Thus, I invite you all to improve Fortran by leaving your opinions/feedbacks on the functionalities
that are being discussed on Fortran’s issues page.
Many functionalities will be discussed upon throughout the course of the project one by one and hence I will keep you posted with the current status and discussions of the project through blog posts like this on this discourse group.
If you have any functionality in your mind to propose or discuss, please feel free to tag me (@Aman-Godara).
currently in discussion:
1). intelligent slice functionality for strings #413
Short Description: Slice is an intelligent function which traverses the input string from start index to end index taking a stride of stride indexes to return a new string.
Please use the above given link to know more about the functionality, linked PRs (Pull Requests) and to join the discussion. There are many things which are still left to be discussed and improved.
Congratulations fellow interns!
