A manual for the new language was published in the fall of , and the first Fortran compiler was delivered in April of It was the first optimized compiler. Although a journal article in described Fortran as old-fashioned, it has been in use for more than a half a century now, and it still produces a large body of software. FORTRAN. FORTRAN (FORmula TRANslating) is a programming language historically used in math, science, and engineering programs. It is recognized as the first high-level programming -level programming languages are much closer to human language than machine language, through which computer hardware accepts commands. This report documents the results of tests of accuracy performed on Fortran library functions corresponding to version (PSR ) of the Fortran Extended Library and version V of the CDC SCOPE operating system; version (PSR ) of the Fortran Extended Library and the NOS operating system; and version (level ) of the Fortran extended Library and level C of the . Watfor 77 was a student fortran that ran on PC's (and in different versions on I.B.M. / and mainframes). They were done at U. of Waterloo and eventually spun off to Watcom. The Watcom Fortran was a following FORTRAN that had an inheritance of add-ons from Watfor and Watfiv (= Waterloo FORTRAN IV, the one for the I.B.M. 's).

I started on Fortran IV (WATFIV) on punch cards, and my early working years were VS FORTRAN v1 (IBM, Fortran 77 level). Lots of good advice in this thread. I would add that you have to distinguish between things done to get the beast to run at all, versus things that "optimize" the code, versus things that are more readable and maintainable.

WATFIV, or WATerloo FORTRAN IV, developed at the University of Waterloo, Canada is an implementation of the Fortran computer programming is the successor of WATFOR. WATFIV was used from the late s into the mids.

This is a reference manual intended for programmers with a working knowledge of the Fortran language and some understanding of the Solaris(TM) operating environment and UNIX commands.

How This Book Is Organized. My first suggestion is to ask yourself - Is it really necessary to learn FORTRAN.

If the course requirements or the requirements of some project specifically require that you do, only then should you consider learning FORTRAN. If the answer is NO. FORTRAN for Social Scientists & Economists Why this book.

The goal of this small book is to help researchers and students in social sciences with no background in computing sciences, and without any specific knowledge about low-level programming languages, use FORTRAN for their research.

To support the use of the JX version of WATFOR, the WATFOR Language Reference manual and User's Guide were translated into Japanese. During the summer ofthe IBM PC version of WATFOR was adapted to run on the Unisys ICON, an iAPX based microcomputer system that ran the QNX operating system.

The FORTRAN defined by the first standard, officially denoted X, became known as FORTRAN 66 (although many continued to term it FORTRAN IV, the language on which the standard was largely based).

FORTRAN 66 effectively became the first industry-standard version of ed by: John Backus. This FORTRAN study guide is a "hands on" introduction to programming using FORTRAN. The emphasis in this course is to learn how to program rather than to learn FORTRAN. My experience is that most people who need to write computer programs know several languages, and often these are self taught.

Once you have a firm concept of what programming. FORTRAN is written for students who have no prior knowledge of computers or programming. The book aims to teach students how to program using the FORTRAN language.
