Using Fortran, early and accurate forecasts for hurricanes and other major storms have saved thousands of lives.
If I've would had this book when writing my master thesis in astrophysics I would have spared a lot of time in learning how to write the code for my calculations.
do-loop to iterate
averagefunction for a derived type
+operator for two
Fortran is a general-purpose programming language that is dominant in engineering and scientific computing applications. It’s the leading language used in high performance (HPC) and parallel programming. While Fortran is the oldest high-level programming language, it is constantly improving. The most recent major revision of the standard, Fortran 2008, added native support for parallel programming on shared-and distributed-memory architectures, and will be one of few languages used for next-generation exascale HPC applications. Fortran 2018 will include additional parallel features and improve interoperability with C.
A few Fortran facts:
Simply put, the future is in parallel, and Fortran is already there.
