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 the libraries that are being developed under this project as the “go-to” libraries for performing string operations in Fortran.
Thus, I invite everyone to improve Fortran by leaving opinions/feedbacks on the functionalities that are currently in discussion.
If you have any functionality in your mind to propose or discuss, please feel free to tag me (@Aman-Godara).
