Bug ID: 84119
           Summary: Type parameter inquiry for PDT returns array instead
                    of scalar
           Product: gcc
           Version: 8.0
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: fortran
          Assignee: unassigned at gcc dot
          Reporter: neil.n.carlson at gmail dot com
  Target Milestone: ---

There seems to be a misconception in the implementation of PDT that the type
parameters are (in part) just regular components of the type, so that for

type foo(a)
  integer, len :: a
end type
type(foo(a)) :: array(9)

the type inquiry array%a should give a rank-1 array of size 9. This is
incorrect. Type parameters are not components of the type. The F08 standard
clearly distinguishes between type parameter definition statements and
component definition statements. See R425, R431, R435, and in particular see
Note 6.7 which says "It [array%a, for example] is scalar even if designator is
an array."

Here's a test case that should pass.  GFortran will bail on both stop lines.

type :: vector(dim,kind)
  integer, len :: dim
  integer, kind :: kind
end type
type(vector(3,1)) :: a(10)
if (size(shape(a%dim)) /= 0) stop 1
if (size(shape(a%kind)) /= 0) stop 2
