Fortran has been around since the 1950s and obviously there is a large amount of Fortran code lying around. However, I'm curious if C or another programming language will someday supplant Fortran. Perhaps scientists will gravitate towards high-level math packages like Matlab and Maple, and programming skills will become less important. Any ideas or opinions out there?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
