Format: Paperback
Old, but clear and precise explanation of Fortran 77 syntax.
Explanation of the older BLOCK DATA, EQUIVALENCE.
Chapters concerning I/O and portability are still interesting for newbies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for IBM VS2 Fortran 9 April 2016
By J. Clarke - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you run or work in a mainframe shop supporting Fortran code, this is the book you want to hand every new-hire who doesn't already have experience with VS2 Fortran,

Very complete. We use IBM VS2 Fortran on a Z/System, which is an extended Fortran 77. The IBM docs of course cover everything but learning from them is almost impossible. We had a number of Fortran books on hand, all of which left out key features of the language. This one covers everything that's in the spec including some material that some of our very experienced programmers didn't know. Don't count on it for IBM-specific extensions--it treats the standard language--but it pretty much covers all of the standard language.

This isn't the book to get if you want to learn to program, but if you're already competent in another language and need ride the dinosaur, this is pretty much a must-have.
