Using Fortran For Datawarehousing Recursive 1.4Mph Cpu Ram

Recommended Posts

My wife was trained in Colbal and Fortran about 35 yrs ago, isn't Fortran gone now?

It was definitely enough to get my attention.


Yep.  That is where I cut my teeth in the IS career field.  Even schooled in assembly and JCL, along with Cobol, Fortran, and Pascal.  I really liked those ancient languages.  We still have and instance or two with Cobol in our shop, but as far as the others, relegated to hobbyists and such, if even that.

We used Fortran in the Navy and Cobol in the business world after I got out. Pascal was never given the credit it deserved. Everything was a variation of "C" and "Basic" when I retired from the IS world. Even the old Cobol was being transitioned to C and Visual Basic.

Apparently Fortran is still used a little. Not as widely as Java, C, C++, etc. but apparently it's still in use!


Apparently people in the computing industry tend to hang on to their favourite things...
