We are in the process of evaluating Fortran development environments
for a satellite control system and orbit dynamics project. The basic
requirements to be held are the following:
- Hardware: pentium 166 MHz/64 Mb RAM.
- Operating System: Linux.
- Programming Language: FORTRAN 77.
We are looking for a compiler which generates fast, robust code
together with a development environment designed for maximum
productivity. Price is not important.
The compiler must recognise common VAX Fortran extensions such as
RECORD and DO/WHILE loops. Fortran 90 support is highly desirable.
As for the environment our main concern is productivity as said
above. We would like to have features such as integrated edition,
make/compilation, debug and configuration control.
Any pointer or experience would be appreciated.
