Declaring multiple type-bound procedures in a single procedure statement

In Fortran 2003, users can declare only one type-bound procedure in each type-bound procedure statement. Fortran 2008 allows derived type definitions to contain multiple type-bound procedures in a single type-bound procedure statement. XL Fortran V14.1 supports this feature.
Here is an example. For more information about the feature, visit Synt
In the above example, the declaration of type point_2003 conforms to Fortran 2003 and above. It is accepted by Fortran 2003 compilers, such as XL Fortran 13.1, as well as Fortran 2008 compilers. The declaration of type point_2008, on the other hand, conforms to Fortran 2008, and is only accepted by XL Fortran 14.1 and above.
