FORTRAN 77 Language Reference


Extensions to the standard FORTRAN 77 language include recursion, pointers, double-precision complex, quadruple-precision real, quadruple-precision complex, and many VAX® and VMS® FORTRAN 5.0 extensions, including NAMELIST, DO WHILE, structures, records, unions, maps, and variable formats. Multiprocessor FORTRAN includes automatic and explicit loop parallelization.

Sun FORTRAN 77 accepts many VMS extensions, so that programs originally written for VAX systems will port easily to Solaris.

Features implemented in Sun f77 that are not part of the applicable standards mentioned in "Standards Conformance" are flagged with the special character mark @@ throughout this manual.
