Subject: [OMPI devel] Change request for include/mpif-config.h
From: Gunter, David O (dog_at_[hidden])

We have a user complaining about warnings he is getting from his Fortran 95 code.

The Intel compilers throw out this warning:

warning #7346: The CHARACTER* form of a CHARACTER declaration is an obsolescent feature in Fortran 95.

The warning stems from the following two lines in <mpi dir>/include/mpif-config.h:

      character*32 OMPI_GREEK_VERSION
      character*32 OMPI_SVN_VERSION

Can we simply change those lines to the following:

      character(len=32) OMPI_GREEK_VERSION
      character(len=32) OMPI_SVN_VERSION

What would break if that happened?
