@cmacmackin @tomedunn @zbeekman and all, sorry to bother you again. Lefting the unlimited polymorphic approach, I am now wondering if the assumed rank arrays can help me to avoid code-duplication. I know that assumed rank arrays, e.g. real, intent(in) :: x(..) have been introduced for a better C-interop, but I am wonderding if they can help me. There are some cons in their usage? Copy-in-out? I never used them, something of you do this? Thanks in advance!

Universal Linux Package

@giacombum pointed out this interesing project

I know that @rouson @zbeekman and Co. have done a lot of work in packaging OpenCoarrays, maybe this project can be of any help for them and others.

My best regards.

and if this can be helpful also for all our Fortran projects?

From what I recall, assumed-rank isn't all that useful, for much the same reason that unlimited-polymorphics aren't that useful. Assumed size may work better for you.

Yes I was excited about assumed rank until I started learning more about it... Seems mostly only useful for its intended C interop functionality
BTW the latest versions of FORD and JSON-Fortran are in Homebrew thanks to @cmacmackin's dedication and hard work to resolve a few issues.
