I sent Arjen my changes, but I will double check them with a current cvs
version. My primary platforms are Windows and Linux using Intel
Fortran--I do/did use GNU fortran but the F95 support in the cvs version
(as of six months ago) was not complete enough for my needs. I still
have Compaq Visual Fortran, which, while end-of-life'd, is still widely
used and can test against that compiler. I can also test on OSX using
the Intel and Absoft compilers.

That would be useful or I can wait until the cvs anonymous access is
available. The version of plplot that I have cobbled together works
well enough, so waiting would not be an issue.

That extensive fortran 9x testing for a variety of platforms would be a
great help. We are planning to make a 5.6.1 release candidate tarball to
encourage such testing before our final 5.6.1 release. That RC tarball
should be available roughly a week from now. Watch this list for the
details of where to get it, etc.
