Language Conversions

Successful, Maintainable, Fixed-Cost Fortran Conversions

Due to the dwindling number of experienced Fortran programmers and the lack of interest in the language from new developers, businesses are becoming aware of the inherent risk in being dependent upon Fortran-based applications. The challenge for these companies is how to transition away from Fortran while retaining the tremendous investment they have made in their Fortran applications.

To help companies like your’s make the transition, Datatek has developed a sophisticated tool-set and a highly customizable process for the automated conversion of Fortran to newer and better supported programming languages such as C, C++, COBOL, C#, Java, etc. Additionally, your Fortran code can be converted to another vendor’s Fortran product, in order to gain new features / functionality.

We Handle All Aspects & Features Used In Your Code

The following is just a brief list of some of the Fortran functionality that we are frequently asked if we can convert:

  • Whitespace in variables names
  • Arrays
  • Fortran data types (CHAR, INTEGER, REAL, ...)
  • Fortran Intrinsics (INT, LOG, MAX, ...)
  • Fortran I/O
  • Third party library replacements

We handle all aspects and features used in your application’s Fortran code and we convert it into consistent, maintainable code in the target language.

Success Stories

Fortune 100 Media/Entertainment

A subsidiary of a Fortune 100 Media/Entertainment provider wanted to migrate from their legacy platform to Open Systems. Their applications were written in a combination of Fortran, proprietary COBOL, Assembler, and script/macro language. Database access was performed through a proprietary hierarchical data manager. Consolidation of languages was a major priority for the client.
