Hi Norbert,

I have helped several 'beginners' and have written a c. 200 page book on the subject of developing Windows GUIs using ClearWin+. I've given it FOC to Silverfrost to include in their sof ...

Hi Mecej4,

An interesting reply, from which I learned a lot, including that von Neumann seems to have independently discovered a Turing model! It’s a lot like Diesel discovering the Hornsby engine, ...

Mecej4,

As a matter of interest, what actual harm does the EXTERNAL declaration actually do?

PS. I never saw the point of EXTERNAL before I saw ClearWin ... although I did read somewher ...

The Polyhedron benchmarks are seductive, and no doubt Dan is right in saying that they have put users off FTN95. The problem is that the benchmark results are fake. Not fake in a deliberately misleadi ...

On the one occasion I used ‘code polishing’ software (CPS), the output was, to my eyes, far less comprehensible than the original. The style you get is what the author of the CPS thinks is ideal. At l ...

Bill,

Bill,

It's probably worth looking at the routine FILES@ (see the FTN77 Library Reference file in Silverfrost > Silverfrost Fortran FTN95: Documentation). Hint: it's on page 33 of the documentati ...

Seriously, it became obvious to me from a range of Bill's previous posts that his main app is something to do with oil/g ...

The description sounds very much like a borehole log, of which only a small part is visible at a time.
