Fortran Scientific Notation

  1. Sep 10, 2008 #1
    I've a program in FORTRAN which I need to convert to C#,
    there's an assignment statement like this:
    Code (Text):

    What exactly does it mean? Is it 10*10^6? or 10.000000?
    Do you have some tips to convert the FORTRAN program to any
    modern language (C#, JAVA, C/C++) ?

    Thank You
