SAL Home PROGRAM Tools & Utilities


CFORTRAN provides tools to help create an easy-to-use and machine independent interface between C and FORTRAN routines and global data.

FORTRAN routines and global data can now be used as easily from C as they can from FORTRAN. Similarly FORTRAN programmers can now use C routines and global data just as easily as FORTRAN routines and data. In short, even without a deep understanding of the 'foreign' language, programmers can trivially call routines and use data from the 'foreign' language.

The interface which gives programmers the above freedoms is easily created. The source code for the 'foreign' routines and data is not required; a description of the global data and of the routines' arguments and return values is sufficient. The interface can be created with little or no knowledge of any machine/OS/compiler/linker subtleties.
