[this might be of interest to Mathematica users of MathLink.] Absoft is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Object-Oriented FORTRAN 77 v3.2 for NEXTSTEP486 for Intel processors. The new compiler is 100% source compatible with Absoft Object-Oriented FORTRAN for NeXT's 68040 based computer systems, allowing application migration to the NEXTSTEP486 environment with a simple recompilation of source code. Object-Oriented FORTRAN for NEXTSTEP for Intel processors combines Absoft's experience in developing optimizing compilers for other 32 bit Intel UNIX environments (SCO, SVR4, UnixWare) and our five years of experience with NEXTSTEP on the original NeXT hardware platform. Major features of the new compiler are: o Special Intel486/Pentium processor optimizations yield maximum performance from NEXTSTEP486 FORTRAN applications/libraries o 100% source compatible with Absoft Object-Oriented FORTRAN for 68040 based NEXTSTEP o VAX/VMS, IBM/VS, Sun/Cray compatibility options aid in porting to the NEXTSTEP for Intel processors environment The compiler is fully ANSI Standard X3.9-1978 including all MIL-STD 1753 extensions. An Intel 486DX or Pentium processor and the NEXTSTEP 3.1 Developer Release are required. Part of Absoft's Multi-Platform Solution suite of tools, Absoft FORTRAN for Intel based NEXTSTEP provides source compatabilty with existing Absoft FORTRAN products for: o Intel Unix platforms (SCO ODT, Interactive SVR4, UnixWare, etc.), o DOS (32 bit extended), o Windows NT for Intel486/Pentium, o Macintosh, o SunOS SPARC, and o AIX IBM RS/6000. Regular retail price of Absoft o Motorola OCS/BCS 88K platforms (D.G. AViiON, Motorola Delta, etc) Object-Oriented FORTRAN for NEXTSTEP for Intel processors is $995.00 for a single user/single CPU license. From now until September 1, 1993, registered users of Object-Oriented FORTRAN for 68040 based NEXTSTEP are eligible to purchase a copy of Absoft FORTRAN for NEXTSTEP486 for the introductory price of $495.00, a savings of up to $500.00. Offer good for registered 68040 NEXTSTEP Absoft FORTRAN users in the US and Canada only. Limit one copy per customer.
