Fortran 77 to Fortran 90 and Beyond

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Fortran is one of the primary languages of HPC.  There are many advantages of Fortran 90, 95,`03 and `08 over Fortran 77, including: enhanced performance,portability,reliability and maintainability.  This session will primarily cover the new features up to `95 such as: Kind facility, modules, interfaces, pointers, array operations, dynamic memory allocation, function overloading, internal IO, and the forall statement.  We will “build” a program that demonstrates these new features.  We will mention additions (object oriented features)  in Fortran `03 and `08 and look at stream IO from `03 and C interoperability in more detail.  Source code will be available.
