Absoft's Pro Fortran 10.2 adds speed, debugging, more

updated 10:30 pm EDT, Wed October 15, 2008

Pro Fortran 10.2 ships

Absoft has released Pro Fortran 10.2, featuring increased speed, better debugging and new Fortran tools. Absoft has incorporated Intel's SSE4.1 vector instructions, which can increase speeds as much as 10 percent. Pro Fortran v10.2 also uses Absoft's Fx3 debugger with Apple's Xcode 3.1, improving debugging in both 32-and 64-bit executables. Fortran's new IDE (Integrated Development Environment) includes a new parallel make facility with Fortran awareness that simplifies code development.

Also in the v10.2 release are Source Browsing for indexed C/C++ and Fortran elements, a code completion and text overwrite mode, dual screen editing and external makefiles for projects. Project-wide search and replace has been added, as well as bracket and paren matching and C-style commenting.

Pro Fortran v10.2 is available now for $700, with multi-user floating licenses available. Requirements are an Intel Core Duo, Core 2 Duo or Mac Pro Intel chipset, Mac OS X 10.4.8 or above and 256MB RAM.
