Programmer's Reusable Library (PRL)
Seven g77-callable libraries for POSIX-interfacing, F77 data
type operations, 2D/3D graphics incl hidden-line surface plots,
and world mapping. Graphics is conceptually similar to DISSPLA
except PRL strives to be be object-based.
Current Version: 0.7
License Type: Free Linux Binary. Copyright (C) 1995 Object Access (SM), All rights reserved.
Source Code Availability: Available for sale. http://www.iah.com/oa/www.oa.prices.html
Available Binary Packages:
- Debian Package: No
- RedHat RPM Package: No
- Other Packages: any Linux release containing GNU g77 compiler
PRL can be configured to run on nearly any UNIX system, as well as
DEC VMS. Ports to other POSIX-compiant OSs such as Windows NT are
ANSI standard FORTRAN and C compilers, IEEE standard POSIX function call library or OS kernel,
X windowing system (optional)
Mailing Lists/USENET News Groups:
- Some users have asked for an ELF version under Linux (currently available only as a.out).
- Due to the steep decline in the use of Fortran for development of
new applications, PRL is being phased out as a commercial product by
Object Access as we shift our emphasis to Java. However, PRL 0.8
(unreleased) has merit in being perhaps the only Fortran graphics package
in the world capable of producing 3D virtual reality VRML output. Because
such capability could potentially be very useful to individuals still
using Fortran to create new graphical display applications, we would be
amenable to releasing PRL 0.8 under the GPL, and would welcome hearing from
anyone interested in volunteering to release and support PRL 0.8 under GPL.
We encourage any such individuals to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
