16.2 Unambiguous Generic Procedure References

When a generic procedure reference is made, a specific procedure is invoked. If the following rules are used, the generic reference will be unambiguous:

When an interface block extends an intrinsic procedure, operator, or assignment, the rules apply as if the intrinsic consists of a collection of specific procedures, one for each allowed set of arguments.

When a generic procedure is accessed from a module, the rules apply to all the specific versions, even if some of them are inaccessible by their specific names.

For details on generic procedure names, see Section 8.9.3.
