I have the book "Schaum's Outline Series Theory & Problems PROGRAMMING WITH FORTRAN 77 copyright 1995", well from the time of this book till today(2008-9) changed a lot in FORTRAN 77 ? If yes, what points mainly ? Well start reading this book , or buy another newer book in the subject ? This book can be used with software Force 2.0(version 2.0.8) ? With a Visual FORTRAN edition ? FORTRAN(and FORTRAN 77) can be used with databases (not data files) ? Visual FORTRAN edition can be used ? For FORTRAN 77 applications, GUIs can be built easily ? Visual FORTRAN offers easily implement GUIs ? Where I may find in a CDROM or DOWNLOAD FORTRAN Programs used by NASA Scientists ? VC# 2008 may studied concurrently with VB 2008 ? Or better VB 2008 alone first ? These languages used today in applications used by FORTRAN ? What differs VB 2008 from VB.NET 2008 ? Also exist any difference between VB.NET 2008 and ASP.NET 2008 ?
