Program that converts f77 to f90/95?

  1. Nov 16, 2008 #1
    Hi all,
    I was wondering whether there is a prgramme that converts f77 to f90/95? Because I am about to get source code from a supervisor, and I know f90 but he's written it in f77 :(

    Most (all ?) f77 code is also legal f90. F90 just adds new features.

    You don't say. So if I were to modify my supervisor's code, hopefully I shouldn't run into any errors regarding the differing versions of FORTRAN?

    You can compile f77 in f90, you can't compile f90 with f77. Time only goes forward.
