Abstract : This FORTRAN volume presents, in order: a set of quick and clear reference charts for ANS FORTRAN 66 syntax; observations on using only standard FORTRAN 65 features; instructions on circumventing and extending FORTRAN 66 with the least harm; an appraisal of the new FORTRAN 77 in terms of FORTRAN 65 constructs. Although the chapters comprise much material that has appeared in other technical memoranda or published articles, heavily recast sections have been re-refereed. The four chapters address programmers concerned with FORTRAN transportability, managers engaged in programming standards, and other practitioners interested in system influences upon languages. Since the text touches upon several general programming aspects (input/output, storage allocation, storage lifetimes and protection, control structures), the volume's appeal will extend beyond the immediate FORTRAN community.
