About Fortran At York

Fortran is the oldest programming language yet it is still used today. This is probably due to its speed of execution, the availability of proven and extensive library routines, and the fact that most scientists and engineers today know it.

This site contains The Guide (a hyper-linked quick reference for those with a prior programming experience), Labs (6 on the basics for beginners followed by another 6 on scientific computing), SLATEC (overview and examples on using the library), Downloads (compiler and library), and other resources.

Labs should probably be your starting point because Lab-1 takes you through the setup process (on campus or at home) and you can then take it from there, lab-by-lab, at your own pace.
