Hi,
I never wrote fortran but it shouldn't be too hard.
First the fortran-file "function.f90" with the content
>>>>>
real*8 function fortfunc(a,b)
real*8 a,b
fortfunc=a*b
end function fortfunc
>>>>>
Second the interface.tm for the MathLink
>>>>>
#include "mathlink.h"
extern "C" double fortfunc_(double *a, double *b);
:Begin:
:Function: multiply
:Pattern: multiply[a_?NumericQ, b_?NumericQ]
:Arguments: { a, b }
:ArgumentTypes: { Real, Real }
:ReturnType: Real
:End:
double multiply( double a, double b)
{
return fortfunc_(&a, &b);
}
int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
return MLMain(argc, argv);
}
>>>>>
Compile the fortran file with
g95 -Wall -c function.f90
process the .tm file with the mprep program to create the .c file
mprep -o interface.c interface.tm
compile the file and link it with the objectfile from your fortran code
g++ -I$mpath interface.c function.o -L$mpath -lMLi3
Here $mpath contains the path to the MathLink compiler stuff. On my
OSX this is
mpath=/Applications/Development/Mathematica7.app/SystemFiles/Links/
MathLink/DeveloperKit/CompilerAdditions/
on a linux box the Mathematica root is usually under /usr/local/
Wolfram/Mathematica/
Then you can start the executable
./a.out -linkname blub -linkmode listen
and use it inside a Mathematica session with e.g.
lnk = Install[LinkConnect["blub"]]
LinkPatterns[lnk]
multiply[10.0, 11.0]
Uninstall[lnk]
That's it.
Cheers
Patrick
