Linuxhelp _ Programming in Linux _ Old Fortran Code

Posted by: JB191 Jun 23 2009, 12:33 PM

Hi guys,

Sorry if this is something ridiculously stupid I'm doing, but I'm pretty much completely new to this and could use some help. I'm trying to compile a piece of software which is pretty old, and needs a utility called 'fsplit' to compile correctly. This splits large blocks of fortran code into smaller segments. The problem I'm having is that I can't find it anywhere, the nearest thing I can find is 'f90split' which doesn't appear to do what I need, although I'm not sure why. I believe the code I'm trying to compile was written in fortran77 not 90, which might explain it. Anyway, any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I found references to a fsplit app that does both f77 & f90 but the URL to the source code was not valid anymore. Is it reasonable that f90 is backwards compatible with f77?

I would have assumed so as well, but when the compiler calls it, all I get is a message saying it's writing dependencies to a file. I'm not really sure what that means, but it doesn't do much after that. Any ideas??
