Project Strings: improving strings support || Blog Post #4 || GSoC

Hello everyone!,

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).

Currently in discussion:

1). Count (not raised yet)

Short Description: The function returns the number of times the pattern substring occurred in the given string string.

2). Replace substring in character/string_type #366

Short Description: The function replaces the input pattern substring with the replacement string in a given string string.
Linked PR: #436
Current Status: Draft PR under review

3). Pad #394

Short Description: Pads a string string with the provided character sequence pad_with. Needs discussion to finalise the first draft of specifications to provide in the API.

Please use the above given link(s) to know more about the functionality, linked PRs (Pull Requests) and to join the discussion.
