TheFortran 90 Handbook is a de\ufb01nitive and comprehensive guide to Fortran 90
and its use. Fortran 90, the latest standard version of Fortran, has many
excellent new features that will assist the programmer in writing ef\ufb01cient,
portable, and maintainable programs. TheFortran 90 Handbook is an informal
description of Fortran 90, developed to provide not only a readable

explanation of features, but also some rationale for the inclusion of features and their use. In addition, \u201cmodels\u201d give the reader better insight as to why things are done as they are in the language.

This handbook is intended for anyone who wants a comprehensive survey of Fortran 90, including those familiar with programming language concepts but unfamiliar with Fortran. Experienced Fortran 77 programmers will be able to use this volume to assimilate quickly those features in Fortran 90 that are not in Fortran 77 (Fortran 90 is a superset of Fortran 77).

Chapter 0 provides a brief overview of several of the most important features that are new in Fortran 90. Chapters 1\u201314 correspond to Sections 1\u201314 in the standard. (The standard is the complete of\ufb01cial description of the language, but it is written in a legally airtight, formal style without tutorial material and can be dif\ufb01cult to understand in places.) The handbook and the standard can be examined in parallel for insights into the Fortran language. This makes it feasible to use this handbook to \u201cdecipher\u201d the standard, and this is an ideal use of this book.

Although the handbook is written for use in conjunction with the standard, it
is also designed as a practical stand-alone description of Fortran 90. In the
interest of readability, a few of the more obscure aspects of the standard may
