Fortran Programming - Advanced
DURATION: 4 days

FEE: $1,980

Based upon a class size of six students.

Scheduling can be adjusted to employee work hours and incorporate client assignments.

There is a surcharge associated with training two or fewer students.


  • Programmer
  • System Analyst
  • IT Professional


    1. Double and Single Precision
      • Determine how many digits are used by Fortran to represent real numbers with single and double precision formats.
    2. Portability and Standards
      • Migrate a Fortran program to a newer release.
    3. Save, Reverse Communication, and Arrays
      • Create an allocatable pointer array with the save attribute.
      • Populate the array and display the content.
    4. Internal Files
      • Code and test a program using internal files for converting a string to an integer and an integer to a string.
    5. Arrays in Fortran
      • Array constructors are a new feature of Fortran 90 and provide the capability to define an array dynamically; create an array constructor.
      • Specify the value of an array by listing its elements between two special delimiters.
    6. Work Arrays and Array Partitioning
      • Code a program that will efficiently make use of parallel processing using partitioned arrays.
    7. Memory Efficiency
      • Given an inefficient program, recode the program to save internal memory.
    8. Code Optimization
      • Given a working Fortran program, review the code and perform code hoisting which moves computations outside loops, saving computing time.
    9. Input/Output
      • Code and test a program to perform random access I/O.
    10. Subroutines and Modules
      • Create a module where data is passed by reference and modifies the passed data.
    11. Types and Pointers
      • Create a matrix using points and access the matrix using pointer arithmetic.
    12. Arrays
      • Code and test a sparse matrix.
    13. Control Structures
      • Create a linked list using nested loops.
