I wanted to publicly announce a modern Fortran webpage that I have
been working on for some time:
I am new to this mailing list and I only started to use modern Fortran
on a daily basis about 1.5 years ago (previously I was
using C/C++ and Python). When I was learning Fortran,
I was missing some authoritative online resource telling
me what the modern way of doing things is, preferably
shown on examples (possibly also compared to
let's say Python/NumPy). The page is opensource:
I'll be happy to incorporate any suggestions that you might have.
Would you please let me know if there is something on the page that
should be reformulated? I don't want to do Fortran a disservice.
In particular, here I tried to collect the most frequently asked
questions (at least that I had):
For example just the first one (why would I prefer Fortran
to C/C++) was my first question and also probably the
most frequently asked/discussed question of many of
my colleagues and friends (a lot of whom use C/C++).
I tried to answer all these as best as I could, but
maybe some of you have some useful suggestions
how to improve it.
P.S. I've also sent this announcement to comp.lang.fortran.
