Pointer behavior in procedure

Consider the two following examples:

 

SUBROUTINE S1
IMPLICIT NONE
INTEGER, POINTER :: P(:)
ALLOCATE(P(10))
END SUBROUTINE S1
SUBROUTINE S2
IMPLICIT NONE
INTEGER, ALLOCATABLE :: TEMP(:)
INTEGER, POINTER :: P(:)
ALLOCATE(TEMP(10))
P => TEMP
END SUBROUTINE S2

 

Is it correct to say that S1 leads to a memory leak whereas S2 does not?

Yes.

(The TARGET attribute needs to be added to TEMP in S2.)

Ooops, yes I forgot TARGET (I didn't try to compile those two examples, hence the miss).

Thanks for confirming my understanding of this though! Very much appreciated.
