Here is a bug introduced in ifort version 188.8.131.52
Module Item_Class implicit none Type :: Item_Type End Type End Module Module Container_Class use Item_Class ,only: Item_Type implicit none private Interface Module Subroutine Proc() End Subroutine End Interface End Module SubModule(Container_Class) Container_SubClass implicit none contains Module Procedure Proc type(Item_Type) :: Item End Procedure End SubModule
This code compile fine using ifort 18 but with ifort 19 I got the following error message
Example_Module.F90(21): error #6457: This derived type name has not been declared. [ITEM_TYPE] type(Item_Type) :: Item ---------^
which is obviously wrong.
The problem is that the entities (variables, procedures, derived-type) accessed through host association in the module scope are not passed to sub-modules if the module uses the private statement. My understanding is that this behavior is incorrect since all the entities in the module scope should be accessible from within the sub-modules independently of the private/public statement of the module.
Removing the "private" statement in the module scope of the "Container_Class" module fixes the problem.
I've submitted this to OSC.
