Benefits of continuing Fortran standardisation
If you use Fortran, directly or indirectly, please will you complete
It has been developed by the committee of the BCS Fortran Group
quantify the value of modern Fortran standards to organisations and
individuals. The results of the survey will help the Group justify
continuing involvement in Fortran standardisation efforts.
The results of the survey will be shared with the ISO Fortran
standardisation committee, so your responses will help shape the future
of the Fortran language.
The survey will run until 31 Dec. 2018.
The Fortran language has been steadily developing since its origins in
1957. Many people have been working on revising the Fortran
specification, resulting in Fortran 77, 90, 95, 2003, 2008 and 2018
standards. This survey is designed to find out exactly what benefits
newer Fortran standards bring to the community.
We would like to know how newer Fortran standards have increased the
quality of your code, cut development costs, increased portability or
performance of your code, or whether you can attach any monetary value
to the benefits enabled by modern Fortran standards.
This questionnaire contains 4 sections.
All questions are optional.
It will take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
