topic Interesting Fortran elements in Intel® Fortran Compiler

<P>I was responding to an email on a list server this morning. Like Fortran, math has some weird rules. The 72 column limit is a human artifact we have lived with for 50 years. </P>
<P>So my comments were -- just to tease the pot</P>
<P>Three things would happen in a perfect world</P>
<P>0 and 1 are primes – which they are - the stupid theory that it needs two divisors 1 and itself is flawed</P>
<P>Euler’s Conjecture is true under 1, as it should be – saying a zero on a function is not part of the function is like saying the Sydney Harbour Bridge is just a bridge</P>
<P>Metric would be universal.</P>
<P>For interesting reasons no 2 is pure Fortran at least in my world. </P>
<P>I wish you all a nice day. </P>Mon, 07 Sep 2020 13:58:50 GMTJohnNichols2020-09-07T13:58:50ZInteresting Fortran elements
