Hello,

I started on an IBM 360/G50 in 1974, at the age of 24.  What I would like to
know
is if there is a FORTRAN compiler that can be used on a PC and not cost my life?

Thank you,

Walter

I don't know if this truly is the best newsgroup for this, but anyway... If you mean for Windows, have you tried Salford? http://www.salfordsoftware.co.uk/software/downloads/compilers.html -- Carlos Santander Bernal

Is this to compile an old version of Empire that was written in Fortran?
 Thank you,

I'm guessing you're a different Walter from the one who normally posts here, judging by that email address....

Welcome to newsgroups. A few commonly accepted rules of the road are: (a) Don't ask for replies by email. The whole point of newsgroups is for everybody to share information and advice. http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/usenet/mail-responses.html (b) Make subject lines say something specific, rather than simply "Help". See also http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/usenet/dont.html OK, so I suppose this isn't Usenet as such, but some of the reasons for the rules given apply just as well here.

Have you considered gcc? Even if you're on MSWind there are ways of installing gcc (which can include g77...a Fortran 77 compiler). If you're on MSWind, you might check out CygWin.

"Google is your friend" - don't for get that ;-) I searched for "free fortran compiler for windows pc" and got many useful links - too many to list here. Try it for yourself. BTW, I started on an IBM 360/25 in 1973 at the age of 19. -- Derek (skype: derek.j.parnell) Melbourne, Australia "Down with mediocrity!" 28/11/2006 12:12:50 PM

CDC 6400, PDP-8i, IBM 360/50 -- 1967 at the age of 16. Fortran, COBOL & assember on the big iron, assembler only on the PDP-8. For F77 only capability, OpenWatcom is good. G77 is fairly mature also. Also, for F77 only support, F2C and any decent C compiler ( ;-] ) G95 & GFortran (don't ask why there are two) if you want recent Fortran support. IVF (Intel Visual Fortran) is available free on Linux for hobby use. OR there is always Hercules, and OS/360 & Fortran G are available. Emulating a 360/65 on a P4 was about 100 times as fast (and no 026's or 029's to deal with). This is in addition to what people have already posted on other compilers. HTH Kevin
