Description

Digital Visual Fortran is the latest version of a major programming language tool used by scientists and engineers. Written by key technical writers from the Digital Visual Fortran product team, Digital Visual Fortran Programmer's Guide presents in printed form the critical portions of the official programmer's guide, previously only available online. The result is the authoritative book on Digital Visual Fortran's features and how to use them to create effective applications.

Digital Visual Fortran is the language of choice for computation-intensive scientific and engineering applications, financial applications, and other programs. Digital recently acquired Fortran technology and rights from Microsoft that allows them to use the Microsoft Developer Studio Integrated Development Environment, which is featured in Microsoft's Visual C++ and Visual Basic. The result is that Digital Visual Fortran is much easier to use and looks and works much like Microsoft's industry-leading programming products for other market segments.

Key Features

  • The official programmer's guide to Digital Visual Fortran for Version 6.0A
  • Authors are experts from the Digital Visual Fortran product group
