spurious(?) standards warning

Not the biggest problem in the world but I experienced what seems to be an anomaly or maybe not! Consider the following file source1.f90 that uses the non-standard integer pointer.

module Ork
    implicit none
    interface 
        function Mork()
            integer :: Mork
        end function
    end interface
    pointer(lpMork,Mork)
end module Ork

And then consider a use of the same in file source2.f90:

subroutine nanu_nanu()
    use Ork, only: Mork
    implicit none
    integer :: Mindy
    Mindy = Mork()
end subroutine nanu_nanu

This gives rise to:

Source2.f90(2): warning #7372: Procedures as pointees is not supported in Fortran 2008 standard.   [MORK]

Is that a valid warning in this context given it is not referenced and particularly with use only ? Strangely in the real application I had such warnings that were non associated with any line number in the source.

SHAZBOT! When I compile a source like this, I get duplicate warnings.

Really, only one of them, about the integer pointer statement, makes any sense. The one you cited I can't see valid in any case, and there certainly shouldn't be duplicates. At least I got locators, though two of them are wrong. I will ask the developers to eliminate all but one of the first two. I'd prefer just 7028, I think. 7372 is, if you read it literally, incorrect since F2008 DOES have procedure pointers - just not with this syntax. Issue ID is DPD200414619.

Cheers, I like the fact in this example that Mork does indeed come from Ork and also that Mindy=Mork. OK too cheesy I admit but an old video clip appeared in my social media just before I make that post :-)

So where would Orson fit in here? Not sure I want to know about Mearth.
