Fortran is a programming language geared to scientific and mathematical programming environments. Due to the dwindling number of experienced Fortran programmers and the lack of interest in the language from new programmers, businesses are looking for ways to transition away from Fortran but at the same time retain the tremendous investment they have made in their Fortran code base.

A company can use Datatek's automated Fortran conversion service to convert its Fortran code to another programming language that has a larger pool of developer support. The Fortran code can also be converted to another vendor's Fortran product, in order to gain new features/functionality. Alternatively, a company can choose the option of using Datatek's automated programming services to make customized extractions of the programming logic from the existing code for use in its migration solution.

Datatek's automated Fortran code conversion services make use of Datatek-developed tools, which process and analyze source files like a compiler. Source files are processed and modified as entire files and in conjunction with other related source files.

The following is just a brief list of some of the Fortran functionality that is supported by Datatek's conversion services:

  • Variable whitespace in variable names
  • IMPLICIT
  • FORMAT
  • ARRAYS
  • Fortran data types (CHAR, INTEGER, REAL,..)
  • COMMON
  • Fortran Intrinsics (INT, LOG, MAX, ...)
  • Fortran I/O
