RE: I need help on how to use the Cygwin fortran compiler. Thanks, Dr. McNeill

It's not quite clear what you are expecting.

There's a Fortran77 compiler frontend included in the Cygwin gcc
distribution. You have found the command. 

The following suggestions assume that you have started a bash shell. If you
have installed Cygwin using the SETUP program, you should have a Cygwin icon
on your desktop. Click this icon to open a bash shell.

For documentation:

  man g77


  info g77

The may not be properly installed. If the last commands just
complains that g77 is not found:

  cd /usr/info
  install-info dir

There's no IDE (integrated development environment) included with Cygwin
(except the debugger, gdb). I believe some exist, but can't recommend any.
There's a GCC IDE at, but I'm not
sure it is any good for Fortran.

You can also compile Fortran programs from within emacs.

Kind regards
Peter Ring

Dear Cygwin:

Recently I purchased a HP Pavilion 750n PC, which has Windows XP, to 
perform numerical calculations at home relative to my theoretical research 
in physical chemistry.  I thought about purchasing a FORTRAN compiler but a 
friend of mine suggested that instead I download Cygwin and use the 
available FORTRAN compiler in this package of free-ware.  Well I did that 
last night, and from reading his E-mail instructions I was to download the 
g77 FORTRAN compiler.  However, it did not work on my new PC at home.  Yet, 
I only could access the g77 FORTRAN compiler in DOS via Command statement 
on RUN.  If there is instead a FORTRAN compiler already with the Cygwin and 
I was not suppose to use g77 please let me know ,and please inform me on 
how to access this Cygwin FORTRAN compiler if it exists.  I tried searching 
for any FORTRAN compiler that came with Cygwin but I could not find any 
statement on how to utilize it on the web site.  Your assistance will be 
greatly appreciated.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. James H. McNeill
