Fortran FAQ

 Here are some answers to frequently asked questions. The "author", as is
 the custom, has appropriated posted responses as seemed apt. I have tried
 to leave attributions in, as correctly as possible. To anyone who has been
 offended by omission or otherwise, my apologies. I shall give priority to
 corrections regarding attribution.

 No one takes responsibility for any of this text, neither the employer of
 the "author", the "author", friends of the "author", pets of the "author"
 nor anyone else.

 Your mileage WILL vary.

 A good place to look for FAQ's is:

    directory:  /pub/usenet

 If you have comments/suggestions/edit proposals please send them to me
 ( I do not promise to accept 'em. I encourage
 others to make better FAQ lists, so I can retire this one.

 The structure of the current list has been modified from previous versions
 in an attempt to group related questions according to their topic, and to
 maintain consistency with the new order.  Let the author know if any
 inconsistencies have been introduced by the revision.  A more recent reorganization, and htmlization
 (which is what this ascii text is derived from) thanks to Abraham Agay.

1.1) The language(s) and its(their) development

1.1.0) How should one spell FORTRAN/Fortran?

       FORTRAN is generally the preferred spelling for discussions
       of versions of the language prior to the current one ("90").
       Fortran is the spelling chosen by X3J3 and WG5.
       In this document a feeble effort has been made to capitalize
       accordingly (e.g. vast existing software ... FORTRAN vs.
       generic Fortran to mean all versions of the standard,
       and specifically the modern dialect, ISO 1539:1991).

       ~From: (Walt Brainerd)

       There was an effort to "standardize" on spelling of programming
       languages just after F77 became a standard.  The rule: if you say
       the letters, it is all caps (APL); if you pronounce it as a word,
       it is not (Cobol, Fortran, Ada).  See, for example the definitive
       article describing Fortran 77 in the Oct 1978 issue of the Comm.
       of the ACM.  The timing was such that FORTRAN got put on the
       standard itself, though many always after that have referred to
       it as Fortran 77.  Of course, there are those who think it is
       not truly Fortran if not written with all caps.

       ISO 1539:1991 and its ANSI counterpart X3.198-1992 consistently
       employ the spelling "Fortran" to refer to the language being
       defined. Reference(s) to the older version employ "small caps"
       for the "ORTRAN" characters.


1.1.1) Where can I learn more about the history of Fortran?

       ~From: (Michael Metcalf )

       The history of Fortran is documented in:

       Annals of History of Computing,
          6, 1, January, 1984 (whole issue)

       Programming Systems and Languages
          (S. Rosen ed.),
          McGraw Hill, 1967,
          pp 29-47 (this is Backus's original paper)

       History of Prorammining Languages
          (R.L. Wexelblat ed.),
          Academic Press, 1981,
          pp 25-74

       A summary appears in:

          Encyclopedia of Science and Technology,
             Academic Press, 1986,
             vol. 5, under 'Fortran'

       and in:

          Fortran 90 Explained
             (Oxford, 1990).
             Chapter 1 of


1.1.2) How does Fortran 90 relate to FORTRAN '77?

       With a few minor exceptions, Fortran 90 is a superset of
       X3.9-1978 FORTRAN.

       But this does not mean that all "77" codes will port sans changes.
       Many (if not most) programmers employed constructs beyond the '77
       standard, or rely on unspecified behavior (say, assuming that an
       OPEN of an existing file will position the file pointer to just
       past the last record already written) which has changed (that is
       to say, has become specified).

       This leads to the obvious question, what is new in Fortran 90?

       A complete answer would require considerable text.
       Some of the most obvious additions are:

          1) array notation (operators, etc.)
          2) dynamic memory allocation
          3) derived types and operator overloading
          4) keyword argument passing, INTENT (in, out, inout)
          5) modules
          6) modern control structures
          7) free format source code form
          8) other stuff

       While it is always tricky to characterize the motives of
       a large group of people, I  am inclined to try
       as follows:

       '90 incorporates two sets of improvements:

          (1) relatively minor fixups that *could* have been
              done earlier

          (2) relatively major changes to enable better software
              engineering practices.

       Sometimes a "minor" fixup has major effect, such as addition
       of free form source form combined with canonization of the
       MIL-STD 1753 INCLUDE.

       I further go off on a limb and assert that it was the goal
       of the *committee* to evolve Fortran in a fashion to enable
       it to continue to be the premier language for scientific


1.1.3) Is it a Standard? Where can I get a copy of the Fortran 90
       Standard? How about electronic copies?

       Fortran 90 was adopted as an International Standard by ISO
       in July, 1991.  It was published by them as ISO/IEC 1539:1991,
       and is obtainable directly for 185 Swiss francs from:

       In accordance with an official agreement with the International
       Standards Organization, Unicomp is now able to distribute
       electronic versions of the Fortran 90 standard:

          ISO/IEC 1539 : 1991,
          Information technology--Programming languages--Fortran

       The money received from this effort will go partly to fund ISO
       activities and partly to recover the costs incurred by Unicomp
       in preparing and typesetting the standard document.
       The prices are set by ISO.

       The document can be obtained in three versions:

          1. An ASCII version suitable for viewing on a computer
             terminal using any kind of editor.  Cost: USD 125.

          2. A PostScript version with a license allowing the
             purchaser to print n paper copies.  Cost: USD 125 + 10n.

          3. Complete source in ditroff with macros and software to
             extract and create the annexes.  The source constitutes
             a fairly high level marked-up document; for example,
             each program beginning and ending is marked and there
             are few low-level typographic commands such as size
             and font changes.  Cost USD 1000.

       I am quite enthused especially about version (2).  If you want
       to have 10 copies for your organization, and it costs $10 to
       make a printed copy, then the cost to make the 10 copies would
       be $125 + $200, or just $32.50 per copy, which is a substantial
       savings over purchasing paper copies.

       Versions (1) and (3) will be accompanied by a license restricting
       use to one CPU and prohibiting copying, except for backup purposes,
       etc. The version (2) license will prohibit distributing any of the
       printed copies outside of the purchasing organization.

       If you have special requirements, such as wanting to distribute
       a copy with each version of your compiler or using the source
       as a part of your documentation, we can make special arrangements,
       subject to the approval of the ISO.  Please advise me of your
       requirements and we can work up a proposal together.

       ISO and Unicomp think this will provide the oft requested access
       to the standard in electronic form. This is the first time this
       is being tried, so we hope that organizations will be careful to
       observe the rules and encourage the continued availability of
       this and other standards in electronic form.

       Payment can be made by Visa or MasterCard, or with a check on
       a US Bank in US funds.  We  will accept a purchase
       order only if the amount is $500 or more.

1.1.4) Who creates these silly standards anyway?

       Typically X3J3. X3J3 is an ANSI subcommittee dedicated to Fortran.
       WG5 is the ISO counterpart. WG5 owns responsibility for Fortran
       on an international basis. WG5 has previously tasked X3J3 to do
       the work. This arrangement continues.

       WG5 is composed of Fortran users, vendors, and academics
       from several ISO supporting nations. Delegates represent
       *their*countries* not their companies; so several delegates
       from a single company is permitted.

       ANSI rules prohibit multiple voting delegates from the same company.
       X3J3 is composed of users (aerospace, government labs, military,
       DECUS, railroads, oil to name a few), vendors (IBM, CRI, Sun,
       Convex, DEC, UNISYS, to name a few) and the odd academic
       (oxford, yale, liverpool, to name a couple).
       Members need not be US citizens nor must their company be US
       domiciled.  Being a member of a standards group is typically
       involves non-trivial work.
       To be effective, one should plan on at least 8 weeks of time
       per year (those who are really doing the hard work do far more).
       This time commitment is typically far more expensive than the
       travel and membership costs.

       X3J3 meetings are open to the public. There are typically 4
       meetings a year, typically 3 are in the US and 1 *may* be
       overseas (to precede or follow the WG5 plenary session).
       Membership fees are levied by ANSI, and are on the near order
       of $600 ($300ish cast as an ISO "tax", but mandatory for all).
       In addition, attendees to a particular X3J3 meeting pay a
       "meeting fee" which covers reproduction costs, snacks and etc.
       The meeting fee has been about $100 for the last several meetings.

       WG5 has established various goals and targets for future work.
       Roughly speaking 5yrs rather than 13years are the targets for
       future work.

       Current work projects include cleanup and interpretations
       of Fortran (90), features for future versions of the standard
       (e.g.  parallel processing, "object-oriented" technologies, etc.).
       In addition to work done directly by X3J3, there is work on
       standardized modules, and OS bindings taking place in other
       organizations. X3J3 would like to keep track of such efforts,
       those involved are invited to inform X3J3 early in their
       development efforts if possible. X3J3 is currently working
       with X3H5, DIN (varying string character) and tracking the
       efforts of HPFF.

       New members are always welcome. Visitors are also; though it
       is very hard to get a good grip on things in only one meeting!

       Contact the X3J3 chair for more information:

          email:      (chair)

       Upcoming meeting is:  5 Feb - 9 Feb   Las Vegas

          and may be of some use to you.
