Is there a function in fortran that is similar to Deepcopy in Python?

Thanks!

It depends on what you are

It depends on what you are copying.

For objects that do not have pointer components, ordinary assignment performs a deep copy.

For objects that do have

For objects that do have pointer components, you can define an appropriate assignment subroutine. Mind you: what such a routine should do depends very much on the intended use. For instance: if you have a circular buffer that is implemented using a linked list that points back into itself, such an assignment might be tricky.
