Created by IBM in 1956. This is one of the very first high-level programming languages, and it drove much of the early development in compilers. Although we would no longer consider it a very high-level language, Fortran still thrives in its niche of scientific computation, primarily fueled by familiarity and extremely well-optimized compilers.

Important: We will be follwing the Fortran 77 standard. This is not "free-form" Fortran, meaning that you have to be somewhat careful about the use of whitespace in your code.

How I will run your code

Save your program in a file called proj.f77.

I will test your code in the same environment as the lab machines in MI 302, using the commands

  /usr/bin/gfortran proj.f77 -o proj
