Advanced modern Fortran

Overview

The course provides an introduction to the rest of the capabilities of modern Fortran, including generic programming, object oriented programming, parameterised derived types, exception handling using IEEE facilities, C interoperability and parallel programming.

 

The course is suitable for people who have attended the Introduction to modern Fortran course, or have a basic grounding in Fortran or a good grounding in another programming language.

 

The course is also suitable for people wanting to convert from another language and already have a basic grounding in Fortran.
