MathCode F90 http://www.wolfram.com/products/applications/mathcodef90/
converts Mathematica to Fortran 90 .

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.
