Is possible to create an execuble program from a fortran program?
If yes, how can I do it?
Thank you in advance

You have to compile it using a fortran compiler - for example: gfortran, g95, ...

RE: Executable program

wow, j0zn, where is that question coming from? Judging from all the threads that you have started, you have supposedly been writing Fortran programs for a few months now...I wouldn't expect this question from you at this time, unless...

RE: Executable program

I am sorry guys for this poorly made question. I wanted to know if is possible create a program like the windows programs from fortran, click-open-programs or something like this...
Is possible create a way of using a program without to use the terminal?
Is possible create a graphic interface to a program in fortran?

RE: Executable program

Yes - which compiler are you using?

Yes it's possible with Fortran if you have a suitable library for it.

It's possible without Fortran too: You can create a wrapper program in other language, which creates the GUI, reads user input from it, sends it to the fortran program and after the calculation displays the output of the fortran program back in the GUI.
For simple case it's simple. I have this little example using Tcl/Tk:

Consider, we have this simplest Fortran program


program fortcl
  implicit none
  real :: val, sin
  read (*,*) val
  write(*,'(A12,F6.3)') "Result = ", sin(val)  

Compile it (for example with gfortran or g95)


$ gfortran fortcl.f95 -o fortcl 

Then create this Tcl/Tk script in the same directory where is your fortran executable:



# window title
wm title . Sinus

# input field 
entry  .e1

# button
button .b1 -text "Compute" -command fcall

# text field
label  .l1 -bg green

# pack the widgets
pack .e1 -padx 10 -pady 5
pack .b1 -padx 10 -pady 5
pack .l1 -padx 10 -pady 5
proc fcall { } { 
  # Communication with Fortran, printing the result 

  set val [.e1 get]

  if {[string is integer -strict $val] || [string is double -strict $val]} {
    # fortcl.exe is compiled and linked Fortran program
    set f [open "|./fortcl.exe" r+]

    puts $f $val
    flush $f
    gets $f wert
    close $f
  } else {
    # if input was not a number, create error message 
    set wert "Input ERROR !!!"

  .l1 config -text $wert

Now if you run the Tcl script, you get a simplest GUI for the simple fortran program.
I saw more comprehensive examples on the web.

IVF has the MS windows interface
