BK, that's a Whopper.

Where are such things available in Standard Fortran? What are the routine names where you used them before? You might be referring to MATLAB functions, and you can find a disc ...

That looks like a hard one to catch - although interesting to see how you set out the demonstrator, as in most old Fortran FORMATs with Holleriths they were written in capitals only. Seeing that in so ...

Algol 60 lacked standard I/O

So true, but did it matter when the Algol on various manufacturers' machines was so different anyway? (Notably in the way that reserved words were highlighted).

It is nice to be given the credit for something, but it was another poster who produced SetWindowOpacity. I used it originally to make the startup splash screen gradually fade away. It can be terminat ...

Ken, JS has forgotten to add the [irony] tag!

I just watched Frozen II. After the dam has been destroyed, Arendelle's toilets don't flush, and there's no water. Civil Engineers who use Fortran in w ...

I've seen the quote that you can write Fortran in any language, but this is the first time I've seen Algol written in Fortran!

Ken is the on-Forum expert because he does (I think) related things.

If it comes down to an issue of how to design and code the interactive bit then I might be able to help. I've sent you a privat ...

"Bubble sort is simple to program, but it is among the worst in terms of performance."

Spot on. A really accurate statement, and I remember being astonished in about 1970 to read this som ...

That's interesting. I don't think that I ever timed a linker, but you may have a point. I always thought that the MS Fortran linker had a bigger job than the compiler, which in the first version(s) I ...

Mecej4,

That is simply bad programming style, perhaps because the compiler first used had a limitation on the number of named common blocks. One could do the same bad thing in a module full of unus ...

Ken,

What a pity. Only 3000 each way in the 1990s, and being December there was a double air miles offer. As Concorde was always double First Class airmiles already, a trip for a meeting with New ...

Ken,

I suspect it was me, mentioning Clearwin. I'm 71 as well, and cannot see why age should factor into it.

By way of reply, Fortran of any variety is perhaps not the best of programming languages, and ...
