Hi all. I'd like to draw your attention to a repository I have just created called PolyCon. This provides a container type for holding arbitrary data, in as type-safe a way as possible. I wrote this with the goal that it could be used to implement generic data structures. I was wondering if creating such a collection of data structures (perhaps taking the excellent Gee library in Vala as insperation) would be something which this group would be interested in.

@cmacmackin Congratulations on your release. After giving it a shallow read-through the code, it looks to me like a natural extension of modern Fortran capabilities. I still struggle with grasping what would be the typical usage or application of this library . When you get some free time, can you write a brief "Example usage" section in your It would be very useful to me, and perhaps to others as well.

I have added an example implementation of a stack data structure. The README will direct you to the relevant source file.
