Can we have a CMAKE (not just MAKE) facility in ftn95.

I am not familiar with CMAKE so I don't know how much work would be involved on our part.

If there are a number of members of our support community that endorse your request then we could at least do a pilot study to estimate how many man hours of work would be involved.

Yep, I'm aware it's freeware Robert.

It's just that I want to try out using PLPLOT with ftn95, something I looked into a while back now, and in order to compile it the fortran compiler apparently has to be compatible with CMAKE which is used to compile PLPLOT. Which is why I put trying it out on the backburner back in the day.

The fact that CMAKE is freeware presumeaby makes it 'compatible' with integration into ftn95 from a licensing point of view, but I appreciate Paul's comment about having to check out the 'resources required' issue first.

PLPLOt would be a good addition to ftn95 I think.
Another string to it's bow of tea and plot making facilities. As it were.

Others have done it.

John,
I by chance found 20 PLPLOT Fortran examples made in 2004 for FTN95 in my folder and suggest you if you want PLPLOT to be broadly accepted just cosmetically touch them to look more modern. Currently these demos look terrible so every time I see them I want to immediately forget them despite they could be probably very useful. They are the best example of anti-advertisement. May be Absoft has better demos as they recommend PLPLOT, as Steve Jobs would fire the guy who made them next day unless he is color blind

After that may be Silverfrost will consider making analog of %pl for each type of plot by making them compatible with %gr and %og. That will be awesome
