Subject RE: Problem compiling Fortran files using gcc compiler and cpptas ks
Date Fri, 30 Aug 2002 12:25:37 GMT
C, CPP, or Java would be nice, but a lot of the code is in Fortran and we
can't convert thousands of programs....
I am trying to take all the existing code, get rid of the make files, and
use Ant.

Side Question:
Why not bite the bullet and go 'C' 'CPP' or Java??
