Very important point: _IF_ you set v to a specific value before calling
v=v-c there is no problem in Mathematica. If you don't, then you will
run into an infinit recursion. But in this case (without assigning a
value to v) the FORTRAN
statement would not make too much sense anyway?? I would even suspect
the compiler could complain...
