9.53 C_F_POINTER — Convert C into Fortran pointer

Description:

C_F_POINTER(CPTR, FPTR[, SHAPE]) assigns the target of the C pointer CPTR to the Fortran pointer FPTR and specifies its shape.

Standard:

Fortran 2003 and later

Class:

Subroutine

Syntax:

CALL C_F_POINTER(CPTR, FPTR[, SHAPE])

Arguments:
CPTR scalar of the type C_PTR. It is INTENT(IN).
FPTR pointer interoperable with cptr. It is INTENT(OUT).
SHAPE (Optional) Rank-one array of type INTEGER with INTENT(IN). It shall be present if and only if fptr is an array. The size must be equal to the rank of fptr.
Example:
program main
  use iso_c_binding
  implicit none
  interface
    subroutine my_routine(p) bind(c,name='myC_func')
      import :: c_ptr
      type(c_ptr), intent(out) :: p
    end subroutine
  end interface
  type(c_ptr) :: cptr
  real,pointer :: a(:)
  call my_routine(cptr)
  call c_f_pointer(cptr, a, [12])
end program main
