Ships in 3-5 business days
Fortran is the oldest high-level programming language still in use today. It is widely used in scientific and technical fields, and has evolved over the years into a powerful numerical programming language, with excellent support for high-performance computing and data processing.
This text provides an introduction to the most commonly-used modern variant of the language, Fortran 90/95. Unlike most texts on Fortran, there is a strong emphasis on design and software engineering. The reader is not only introduced to the language syntax, but also to how language constructs are best combined to build robust software.
