A short video I cobbled together the other day in response to comments about fortran being archaic and useless for windows applications and plotting data.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycuI2u31cwk

It may help others reading this who are getting started with Clearwin+ and in particular %pl. I do seem to recall getting to grips with winio@ format codes is a bit of a challenge at the beginning.

Ken,

Fortran is archaic, and useless for graphics and plotting. Clearwin+, on the other hand, is what Fortran has always needed, and still does ...

What a great video. Simple and very clearly presented. Was it taken in a single shot?

Can we use this on this page: https://www.silverfrost.com/59/ftn95/videos.aspx

Eddie, as ever you are correct. It was availability of Clearwin+ that renewed my interest in using Fortran a few years ago.

Silverfrost, yes you can link to the video which was taken in a single shot with no editing. There may be be a part two - at a later date as I really need to find things to do to relieve the boredom of our now extended Scottish lockdown.

this post raises the interesting question ......
what happens when the Silverfrost 'stalwarts' (Paul & Co, that's you !) pop their clogs into the coding clouds in the sky ?
What will happen to Ftn95 then ?
Is there a plan ?
Is there a young team being 'primed' to (seamlessly ?) take over and carry on the excellent work ?

Questions, questions, questions.

Why does it raise that question?

John,

Regardless of Robert's answer, here's mine. Should the team at SF be 'resting', 'stunned', 'pinin' for the fjords', 'shagged out after a long squawk' or whatever, before you (or I ) do, then you carry on using the last version of FTN95 until Microsoft alter Windows until it no longer runs, and then, after your last squawk or whatever, that's it.
