MathCode F90 http://www.wolfram.com/products/applications/mathcodef90/ converts Mathematica to Fortran 90 . <snip> > There is an obvious use for such a tool. There exists quite a bit of useful FORTRAN code in various texts and other places. And I for one, do not have ready access to a FORTRAN compiler. There exist several free Fortran compilers for Fortran 77 on Windows, Linux, and other platforms, and two Fortran 95 compilers, g95 and gfortran. A Fortran 95 compiler can compile most old Fortran code written in Fortran 77 or Fortra IV. See http://www.dmoz.org/Computers/Programming/Languages/Fortran/Compilers/ for links to compilers.
