9. Professional Programmers Guide To Fortran 77

Professional Programmers Guide To Fortran 77
Author Clive G. Page
Format HTML, PDF
Pages 122

Professional Programmers Guide To Fortran 77 provides a comprehensive description of the features and implementation of Fortran 77. Ideal as a text from which to learn a second language, or as a reference guide to a first or main language.

Chapters include:

  • Basic Fortran Concepts - presents some of the basic ideas of Fortran by showing some complete example. Statements, Expressions and Assignments, Integer and Real Data Types, DO Loops, Formatted Output, Functions, IF-blocks, and Arrays are explained
  • Fortran in Practice - describes the steps required to turn a Fortran program from a piece of text into executable form. It covers creating source code, compiling, and linking
  • Program Structure and Layout - explains the rules for program construction and text layout
  • Constants, Variables, and Arrays - deals with the data-storage elements of Fortran: constants, variables, and arrays
  • Arithmetic
  • Character Handling and Logic - describes the facilities for handling non-numerical data in Fortran
  • Control Statements - includes IF-Blocks, DO-Loops, Logical-IF Statement, and more
  • Procedures - Instrinsic functions, Statement functions, External functions, and Subroutines
  • Input/Output Facilities
  • DATA Statement - used to specify initial values for variables and array elements
  • Common Blocks - a list of variables and arrays stored in a named area which may be accessed directly in more than one program unit
  • Obsolete and Deprecated Features
  • Common Extensions to the Fortran Standard

One of the attractions of using Fortran 77 is that Linux has an excellent open source compiler in the form of the GNU Fortran compiler, which is part of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC).
