FORTRAN Question

  1. May 14, 2009 #1

    Currently I am using compaq visual fortran 6 to learn fortran programming.

    I am very beginner on this so I really confuse about how to use it. Can anyone tell me which option I should choose from the following attached image, to start writing some fortran code?

    I'm not familiar with the image you posted, but it seems to me that "Developer Studio" would be the way to go.

    The rest of those options should be available to use for your code through the Dev. Studio.

    Hi Maxwell, Thank you for the fast reply. Rather than try it by myself, can you tell me which tab and which of its option I should choose next for sure?

    Hi, you should choose Fortran Console Application in the Project tab. And you should choose a name for your project on that same tab.

    Hey Jayson, I didn't see that you replied.

    For the first picture, like pezze said, you should choose the Fortran console application. This will allow you to create a project and run the code from the command line/console.

    The tab in the second picture includes options for creating a single file as opposed to a project.

    Create a project and add and create files to it from within your IDE.
