"Fortran is one of the principle languages used in the fields of scientific, numerical, and engineering programming today. This textbook for advanced students and practitioners describes the standards of Fortran's latest two versions in a manner that aims to illuminate the implications of its features and support its use in the writing of new programs. Included in the appendices are a list of the intrinsic procedures; a description of the obsolescent features; an extended example illustrating the use of pointers and recursion; advice on avoiding compilation cascades; a glossary; and solutions to most of the exercises."--SciTech Book News
