     5[[PageOutline]]Welcome to the provisional homepage of the Open Source project FORTRAN/TK.[[BR]]
    66FORTRAN/TK is, an easy to learn, powerful cross-platform (OS/2 Warp and Windows 9x/NT) widget toolkit for the [http://www.openwatcom.org/ Open Watcom] FORTRAN/77 compiler. Technically it's a kind of wrapper to [http://rexxtk.sourceforge.net/ Rexx/Tk] but it does not rely on a Rexx interpreter. Although it is possible to [http://www.dci.clrc.ac.uk/Publications/Cookbook/f1.html embed FORTRAN] console programs in Tcl/Tk using pipes, FORTRAN/TK is the first real FORTRAN implementation of the Tk-toolkit from [http://www.tcl.tk/ Tcl/Tk] so far. However if you don't want or can't use the Open Watcom compiler or if you need support for Linux/Unix platforms, you might want to check out [http://ftcl.sourceforge.net/ Ftcl], an API for evaluating Tcl code in FORTRAN programs which can be used for creating Tk-interfaces, too.[[BR]]
    77All Rexx/Tk functions are already usable from within FORTRAN/TK including some which are not even listed in the [http://rexxtk.sourceforge.net/functions.html Rexx/Tk help]. It also includes about 20 new functions, called FORTRAN/TK extensions, which are neither part of Tcl/Tk nor Rexx/Tk nor Open Watcom FORTRAN. They include functions for file management, file searching, basic support for dynamic DLL handling and the clipboard which are commonly needed to write sophisticated GUI applications.[[BR]]

    66 If you don't want to use the Open Watcom FORTRAN dialect or you already know the [http://sepwww.stanford.edu/software/ratfor.html Ratfor-preprocessor], you may want to give it a try with FORTRAN/TK. Here are some notes about [wiki:ratfor FORTRAN/TK and Ratfor].[[BR]]
     66If you don't want to use the Open Watcom FORTRAN dialect, you already know the [http://sepwww.stanford.edu/software/ratfor.html Ratfor-preprocessor] or you have existing Ratfor code, you may want to give it a try with FORTRAN/TK. Here are some notes about [wiki:ratfor FORTRAN/TK and Ratfor].[[BR]]
    6767Currently I'm working on my own FORTRAN preprocessor adapted to the Open Watcom dialect, that's able to overcome some of the compiler's limitations - in a way more FORTRAN-like than Ratfor.
