Fortner Research Announces:
Fortran compiler soon to be available for Metrowerks CodeWarrior

Sterling, VA— Fortner Research, developers of award winning
software for scientists and engineers, has announced their plans
to deliver LS Fortran for CodeWarrior. CodeWarrior owners will
now be able to use LS Fortran to write and compile Fortran
programs directly in the CodeWarrior environment, and mix Fortran
routines with C, C++ and Pascal software, such as the PowerTap MP

Since 1988, LS Fortran has gained a strong following for its
ability to port large, legacy Fortran programs from mainframe
computers to the Macintosh and for its ease in creating
full-featured Macintosh applications. LS Fortran is currently
hosted in the Macintosh Programmers Workshop (MPW), developed by
Apple Computer. Although MPW’s command line interface
environment was the standard for many years, CodeWarrior delivers
an extremely popular GUI with superior project management that
enables programmers to spend more time programming, and less time
on the tedious task of project set-up.

“LS Fortran delivers a full ANSI Standard Fortran 77 language
with robust code generation. Metrowerks CodeWarrior offers the
ideal, easy-to-use environment, with an elegant editor and
debugger. Fortran programmers now have the power of Fortran
without having to learn a complex programming environment, or
hassle with make-files,” states Bruce Lawton, Director of
Development at Fortner Research.

Fortner Research expects to begin shipping LS Fortran for
CodeWarrior by March. Current users of CodeWarrior and LS Fortran
for MPW will be able to purchase LS Fortran for CodeWarrior at a
special introductory price.
