Absoft's Fx3, Xcode 3.1 accelerate Fortran debugging

Fx3 faster with Xcode 3.1

Absoft has announced significant gains in debugging Fortran code on the Mac platform when combining its Fx3 debugger with Apple's recently released Xcode 3.1 update (which provides additional debugging capabilities to developers). The combination of the two tools allows developers to view and modify values of program variables, which can be located in COMMON blocks, allocated in static storage or declared in Fortran 90 modules. The tools can work in both 32- and 64-bit executables and are multi-processor aware.

The Fx3 debugger is part of Absoft's Fortran 10.1 suite, which works in both Fortran and C/C++ languages. The suite is available for $700 for a single user, with numerous discounts for floating-license multiple users. Fortran 10.1 requires a Mac with an Intel processor, Mac OS X 10.4.8 with 256MB RAM. It requires a minimum of Xcode 2.4, but Xcode 3.1 is required for the full benefit or the Fx3 debugger.

    Nice when it works...

    Unfortunately, Absoft's Fortran compiler isn't fully Fortran 95 compliant. Before buying, download a trial version to see if their compiler will work with your code.

    g95 and Intel's Fortran are alternatives...
