Background

Fortran is a general-purpose programming language developed by IBM in the 1950s for scientific and engineering applications. The latest Fortran standards 2003 and 2008 added support for object-oriented programming, inheritance, polymorphism, and parallel processing. Libraries written in C can be linked with the iso_c_binding. Interfaces to ncurses, xlib, and OpenGL exist. Some Fortran compilers have Unicode support.

Compilers

Several commercial and open-source Fortran compilers are available for Linux, Unix, macOS, Windows, DOS, and others (see Fortran Wiki). GNU Fortran is part of the GNU Compiler Collection, Flang is a Fortran front-end for LLVM. Both support the Fortran standards 2003 and 2008.
