This post explains how to call a Fortran subroutine as a DLL from Mathematica. I don't think the hints in this post exist in explicit form in the Wolfram documentation or in the MathArchive, at least so far as I could find.
There is information in a post from Wolfram for how to use Mathlink via C wrappers to get to Fortran subroutines (version 3 of Mathematica? http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/TechNotes/174/). *BUT* I think since the introduction of NETLink into Mathematica (version 6?), the matter is now much more straightforward, at least in a Windows environment.
The purpose of this post is therefore to a future user who might want to follow what I have done.
>From Windows7, 64-bit, and using the gnu compiler (http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/GFortranUsage), here is the trace of the CMD commands:
C:\Demo>dir
22-Jul-11 21:16 336 SumAndDifference.f90
C:\Demo>more SumAndDifference.f90
subroutine sum_and_difference(i,j,resultArray)
implicit none
integer*4, intent (in) :: i
integer*4, intent (in) :: j
integer*4, dimension(2), intent (out) :: resultArray
resultArray(1) = i + j
resultArray(2) = i - j
return
end subroutine sum_and_difference
C:\Demo>gfortran -c SumAndDifference.f90
C:\Demo>gfortran -s -shared -mrtd -o SumAndDifference.dll SumAndDifference.
o
C:\Demo>dir
22-Jul-11 21:21 12,800 SumAndDifference.dll
22-Jul-11 21:16 336 SumAndDifference.f90
22-Jul-11 21:20 429 SumAndDifference.o
Now follows the Mathematica part:
In[1]:= Needs["NETLink`"]
In[2]:= SetDirectory@NotebookDirectory[]
Out[2]= "C:\\MyFortran"
In[3]:= $pathToDLL = FileNameJoin[{Directory[], "SumAndDifference.dll"}]
Out[3]= "C:\\MyFortran\\SumAndDifference.dll"
[To understand below, read: http://www.wolfram.com/learningcenter/tutorialcollection/NETLinkUserGuide/ ]
[Note addition of "_" to "sum_and_difference" that is done by compiler.]
In[4]:= SumAndDifference = DefineDLLFunction["sum_and_difference_", $pathToDLL, "void", {"Int32*", "Int32*", "Int32[]"}]
In[5]:= results = MakeNETObject[{0, 0}, "System.Int32[]"]
In[6]:= SumAndDifference[10, 20, results]
In[7]:= NETObjectToExpression@results
Out[7]= {30, -10}
