Using fortran at ECN

To use Fortran at ECN, you should do the following:

  • Create a file containing your Fortran source code using a text editor such as Emacs. The file should have a name that ends with a '.f' suffix. The compiler assumes that files ending in '.f' are Fortran source files.

  • Compile the source code using the Fortran-77 compiler, 'f77'. For example, if you want to compile a source file named 'program.f', type this:
            f77 program.f
    If your file compiles successfully, the executable file will be named 'a.out'.

    NOTE: On the RS/6000 workstations the name of the Fortran compiler is xlf, NOT f77.

  • To run the executable file, just type its name:
  • If you need to debug run-time errors, you may want to use the 'dbx' source-level debugger. If you want to learn about the 'dbx', you can read the manual page by using the 'man' command:
            man dbx
