The ALIASES configuration is working with C files, but not Fortran files. The following source files generate 2 entries when 3 are expected. "testf test of logical in fortran" from ftest.f is the missing entry.

Preprocessing tags in Fortran to resolve aliases

ALIASES weren't resolved in Fortran as this has to be done for each language separately. For C / C++ (and friends) and for tcl this was done but not for Fortran. This patch fixes this problem.

NOTE: I think this problem might also exist for other languages! and should be fixed there too.

Hi Albert,

I'll include your patch, but this is not a full solution, as @cond...@endcond blocks will still not work. For the longer term I want to split the commentcnv into a language specific part that finds the comment blocks and a language independent part that resolves aliases and @cond...@endcond blocks.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.7.6. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant.
