After I published APU.REL for FORTRAN-80 AM9511 support, I started using more Microsoft FORTRAN-80. The problem? String handling is very poor when
compared to BASIC-80 (MBASIC or BASCOM). I did a little research, and found an article by D R Hanson. Hanson is known more for his work with SNOBOL4, but I found an article from November 1974, describing a technique for implementing strings in FORTRAN IV. I completed a "quick and dirty" implementation which I am publishing as STRLIB.REL
Enjoy! (this library was of great help to me in writing FORTRAN test routines)
PS. Feel free to suggest more or different routines for this library. I just implemented a string library that would help me.
