Which Fortran compiler?

Post by GradPhys » Tue Nov 15, 2011 3:10 pm

I was wondering if anyone here can offer me some guidance as to a good free Fortan compiler. I understand there are quite a few out there and I have read some good comments about a bunch of them, but I was wondering. Does anyone here have any experience with any of these? If so, can you recommend one? I tend to gravitate towards G95 (based on what I've read), but comments from anyone having used these would help!

Open Source Watcom
MinGW G77
G95
GFortran

I have found g95 easy to use and very compatible with everything I've thrown its way, but how is this a relevant topic in these forums that are for trius products? Just wondering, that's all...

Thanks.

I wasn't aware that this was only for trius programs. I saw the discussions about the programming languages, etc. and thought it was a natural question. Sorry if I have offended anyone.

Nobody is offended. I was just pointing something out :-)

I have to agree, the fortran g95 compiler is good and it's free.

BTW, does anyone know if there is a good source of public domain fortran routines out there?

I am certain there are many such sources, but take a look at these...

http://www.fortranlib.com/freesoft.htm
http://www.nag.com/nagware/Examples.asp
http://people.sc.fsu.edu/~jburkardt/f_src/f_src.html

they may have source code you are looking for. I have never used any of it and can't vouch for any of the links, but it looks like there may be some gems in there.
