Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

2020 was the worst! COVID kept the museum closed for much of the year and a mains water pipe bursting causing a flood kept us closed for the rest. 
We're hoping to re-open in the next few months ... fingers crossed! Read More >>>

The Post Office Data Processing Service - Scientific Computing Training - FORTRAN IV Course

Scientific Computing Training
FORTRAN IV Course

Preface:
This document is designed to serve as student notes for those attending the above course. It is by no means a complete handbook of FORTRAN IV -several of these are available - but it is an attempt to show by means of definitions, explanations and examples, how to write FORTRAN programs. The  language is capable of many more things than are shown here but the examples attempt to show the more commonly used techniques of programming. 

The book is split into chapters which progress from introducing very basic FORTRAN concepts and statements to the introduction of the very powerful statements which give the programmer the maximum processing power of the machine.
