Hi, as you can guess I'm new with this program. It may help to let you know my experience.
I learn Fortran on punch cards, moved to dos 286 at which point a change in job took me away from programing but still worked with computers moving onto windows with everything setup already. Now I want to get my old programs running.
So here I am. I installed Codeblocks and WinGW a few times trying to get it to work. At this point I have no spellcheck (PROBLEM 1) but I downloaded it in director download and stuck there. I don't know if my compiler is properly configure (PROBLEM 2). After a couple of time, I was able to copy an old program into main.f90. i don't understand why it works sometimes and not others (PROBLEM 3). I say works because I was able to build it and obtain error messages. I figured out that comments lines are denoted differently now. Before it was with a C and now it is with a !.
Most of the other error messages has to do with formatting write statements with multiple lines; such as with instructions for data input messages (PROBLEM 4).
Any help is appreciated.
