The protected statement in Fortran allows to set global (public) variables to be write protected.

In the following case

-----------------begin numerics.f90
integer(pInt), dimension(2) , protected, public :: &
numerics_integrator = 1_pInt !< method used for state integration
-----------------end numerics.f90

Doxygen classifies "numerics_integrator" as private and finds additional the entities "public" and "protected"

-----------------begin documentation
integer(pint), dimension(2) numerics::numerics_integrator = 1_pInt
integer(pint), dimension(2) numerics::protected
integer(pint), dimension(2) numerics::public
-----------------begin documentation

In the case of only "public" or "private" statements, I don't see any problems.

For further examples, explanation, etc. don't hesitate t contact me

I think in the FORTRAN scanner there is a misinterpretation of the usage of public, private and protected, they exclude each other. I see in the standard that public and private exclude each other and that protected can be used independently of this (I'll have a look this).

In the mean time when running the above "example" I don't get the above mentioned problem, I get that numerics_integrator is only public. So please attach an example to this bug report signaling this problem problem, but I think this problem will disappear as well with the future bug fix.

Created attachment 238220
PATCH: protected and publuic/private are not on the same level

The keyword protected is independent of public/private, in the past these 3 keywords were mutual exclusive, now protected is possible with public/private

I checked it again, it was not working in 1.8.3 but seems to be ok in

In version I saw that when public or private was used together with protected that in that case only one attribute was given. So I think the separate lines in the documentation might have gone, but the underlying problem was still present so the PATCH is still valid.
