Abstract:

This document provides a set of conventions to be followed when writing FORTRAN programs. Enforcement of, and adherence to, these conventions should reduce problems in transferring programs to other computers, should lead to more readable programs, and should make programs more maintainable. For ease of reference, the guidelines have been arranged in the order that the subjects to which they apply would normally be covered in a FORTRAN reference manual. The final section shows in the text of a FORTRAN program both before and after applying the guidelines. An appendix describes how to emulate with FORTRAN code the constructs of structured programming. Author
