|Description:||Initializes a pointer as disassociated when it is declared. This is a new intrinsic procedure in Fortran 95.|
|Class:||Transformational function; Generic|
|Arguments:||MOLD is optional and must be a pointer; it can be of any type. Its pointer association status can be associated, disassociated, or undefined. If its status is associated, the target does not have to be defined with a value.|
|Results:||The result type is the same as MOLD (if
present); otherwise, it is determined as follows:
The result is a pointer with disassociated association status.
Consider the following:
INTEGER, POINTER :: POINT1 => NULL()
This statement defines the initial association status of POINT1 to be disassociated.
