Before You Begin
The Fortran Library Reference describes the intrinsic functions and routines in the Forte Developer Fortran libraries. This reference manual is intended for programmers with a working knowledge of the Fortran language and the Solaris operating environment.
This guide is intended for scientists, engineers, and programmers who have a working knowledge of the Fortran language and wish to learn how to use the Sun Fortran compilers effectively. Familiarity with the Solaris operating environment or UNIX® in general is also assumed.
Discussion of Fortran programming issues on Solaris operating environments, including input/output, application development, library creating and use, program analysis, porting, optimization, and parallelization can be found in the companion Forte Developer Fortran Programming Guide.
The Forte Developer product components and man pages are not installed into the standard /usr/bin/ and /usr/share/man directories. To access the Forte Developer compilers and tools, you must have the Forte Developer component directory in your PATH environment variable. To access the Forte Developer man pages, you must have the Forte Developer man page directory in your MANPATH environment variable.
For more information about the PATH variable, see the csh(1), sh(1), and ksh(1) man pages. For more information about the MANPATH variable, see the man(1) man page. For more information about setting your PATH and MANPATH variables to access this Forte Developer release, see the installation guide or your system administrator.
Note - The information in this section assumes that your Forte Developer products are installed in the /opt directory. If your product software is not installed in the /opt directory, ask your system administrator for the equivalent path on your system.
If you find the path, your PATH variable is already set to access Forte Developer development tools. If you do not find the path, set your PATH environment variable by following the instructions in the next section.
If the dbx(1) man page cannot be found or if the man page displayed is not for the current version of the software installed, follow the instructions in the next section for setting your MANPATH environment variable.
The docs.sun.com web site (http://docs.sun.com) enables you to read, print, and buy Sun Microsystems manuals through the Internet. If you cannot find a manual, see the documentation index installed with the product on your local system or network.
