[Numpy-discussion] f2py with int8
Tue Apr 17 12:47:06 CDT 2012
I suppose this is now going slightly out of bounds for f2py. What I am
looking for is the fortran kind type for a byte. I thought that this was
int8. I guess the question is how to identify the kind type. Although I
have verified that integer(1) seems to work for me, I would really like to
know why and your answer alludes to that.
Please excuse my ignorance on this topic. Can you perhaps educate me a
little on 'literal kind values'? I take you to mean that
'int8' is not a literal kind value while 1 and 8 are examples of literal
