Fortran 90 compiler on the VAX/VMS platform

Fortran 90 compiler on the VAX/VMS platform

Post by Eva Ch » Sat, 13 May 1995 04:00:00



I heard that DEC is not porting their Fortran 90 compiler to
the VAX/VMS platform.  Is that true?
Is there (or will there be) any third party Fortran 90 compiler
available in that platform?
Thanks!

        Answered in comp.lang.fortran where it  was also posted (gee, it
    sure  would  be  nice if people would use  cross-posting  like  it's
    supposed to be used...).  For others interested in the answer:

        DEC Fortran 90 will NOT be ported to VAX hardware.

        You can get both NAG F90 and VAST/f90 for VMS.  NAG requires a C
    compiler, VAST/f90 requires a Fortran 77 compiler.

1. Compilers of Fortran 90 on VAX/VMS or VAX Alpha/VMS ?

I have never heard of a non-DEC FORTRAN compiler for VMS.  VAX FORTRAN
is FORTRAN 77 compatible, but not FORTRAN 90 compatible.  If I remember
correct, then DEC voted against the new FORTRAN 90 standard in the
committee. I assume that DEC will adopt the new standard, but that
it will take some time. The "DEC-FORTRAN-wizard" Steve Lionel
is actually reading this newsgroup, so we can hope, that he will
reveal a little about DEC's plans.
