Passing a 2 dimensional array from c++ to fortran

P: n/a
Sam

Hello all
I have a two dimensional array (the dimensions are not known) that
needs to be passed
to fortran from c++, allocate the dimensions of the array in fortran
code, do some filling up
of the array in fortran and then accessing it in my c++ code.

Say in my c++ code I have;

extern "C" { void foo_(float **, int &, int &); }

int main()
{
............
..............
int rows, columns;
float **array2d; // Now i need to pass this to the fortran code, the
allocation of the array and
// and filling it is done in the fortran code.
// How do i pass this to the fortran subroutine now, i did it this way

foo_(array2d, rows, columns);

// One more question, do i need to do the allocation and stuff here
again
// Do some stuff to manipulate with the array2d

return 0;

}

and my Fortran routine:

subroutine foo(arr,rows,columns)
integer rows, columns
real*8 ,allocatable:: arr (:,:)
! do some stuff to allocate the arrray and fil the stuff

end subroutine
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Regards
Sam

Fortran won't know what to do with an array of pointers to float.
int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
// ...
// ...
int rows, columns;
float **array2d; // Now I need to pass this to the Fortran code,
// the allocation of the array and filling it

To do this,
you must pass a Fortran 90 pointer [to a 2D array]
to a Fortran 90 subroutine foo which allocates memory
for the 2D array and assigns a pointer to the array
to the pointer that you passed into subroutine foo.
Your C++ program must include f90_adapter.h
which contains an f90_2DPointer type definition
for a Fortran 90 2D array pointer (for Absoft in this case).
Function main(int, char**) invokes
function f90_2DPointerPointer(const f90_2DPointer*)
to retrieve the pointer to the beginning of the array
from the Fortran 90 pointer object.
cat foo.f90 subroutine foo(rows, columns, arr)
integer, intent(in):: rows, columns
integer:: row, column
double precision, pointer, dimension(:,:):: arr
double precision, pointer, dimension(:,:):: tmp
allocate(tmp(rows, columns))
do column = 1, columns
do row = 1, rows
tmp(row, column) = row + 10*column
end do
end do
arr => tmp
end subroutine foo
f90 -YEXT_NAMES=LCS -YEXT_SFX=_ -c foo.f90
