Im interested in learning fortran....so as there aren't any classes in the area i'd like to try to self teach myself....


http://www.amazon.com/Fortran-90-95-Scientists-Engineers/dp/0072825758/ref=ed_oe_p/002-4736384-6221663?ie=UTF8

I found that book and thought it looked appropriate as I am a Scientist....



So Im looking for a Windows based Compiler (if it exists?)... Ive tried to download a couple from a couple websites... thing is once I download and extract the file... I dont see any exe file to run the actual program....

Do I write my programs in like...notepad or Word or somewhere and then do a command at the Run prompt?...


Thanks for the help

I use Compaq Visual Fortran

See if you know anyone (at your office perhaps?) with an old copy.

gfortran is also almost complete for 95, but not there yet.

Sorry, but I really can't resist. That must be the most painful way possible to do any kind of coding. At the very least, get a real text editor with syntax highlighting, block indentation, and minimal parsing abilities of your code.
