    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] by Roger O'Connor and Mark Hessling but it does not rely on a Rexx interpreter. Therefore it's the first FORTRAN implementation of the Tk-toolkit from [http://www.tcl.tk/ Tcl/Tk] so far. All 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]]
    77FORTRAN/TK is one of the easiest and most comfortable ways to create graphical user interfaces using the [wiki:fortran FORTRAN programming language]. It even implements features that are not really supported by the Open Watcom FORTRAN compiler at all like variable length argument lists, using some very dirty assembly hacks. Don't ask...[[BR]]
    8 For more information, including dependencies, examples and build instructions, please refer to the [source:/trunk/readme.txt readme.txt]. The [ftp://pub.netlabs.org/pub/fortrantk/fortrantk.pdf presentation about FORTRAN/TK] I held at the [http://wiki.netlabs.org/index.php/Developers_Workshop_2005 Developers Workshop 2005] in Dresden is also a good introduction, although it already contains outdated information.

    3638 * There are [source:/trunk/examples FORTRAN/TK examples] like a text editor, a calculator and a simple test program.
    3739 * The [http://svn.netlabs.org/canabis Canasta card-game Canabis] is based on FORTRAN/TK, too.
