Thanks for looking at my problem. Sounds like you did reproduce my
problem. I have added some comments below

The error about implicit type for lenr went away, but then when I enabled better type checking by using "use mpi" instead of "include 'mpif.h'", I got the following:

What fortran compiler did you use?

In the original script my Intel compile used the -132 option,
allowing up to that many columns per line. I still think in
F77 fortran much of the time, and use 'c' for comments out
of habit. The change to '!' doesn't make any difference.

Hmmm, very strange, since I am looking right at the MPI standard
documents with that routine documented. I too get this compile failure
when I switch to 'use mpi'. Could that be a problem with the Open MPI
fortran libraries???

Just a standard F90 'allocatable' statement. I've written thousands
just like it.

Anyone else out that who can comment????
