NAG Fortran Builder
What is it?
NAG Fortran Builder is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the Microsoft Windows version of the NAG Fortran Compiler. It has been developed by the team behind NAG's Compilers & Tools to provide comprehensive features that will be invaluable to developers, including a GUI. The command line version of the compiler is still included in Fortran Builder for users who want to persist with the previous interface.
Fortran Builder has a wide range of key features that make it extremely easy to use. They include:
Fortran Builder projects include Console Application, Static Library, DLL and projects using various numerical libraries. Once the desired project type has been selected and named, files can be added to the project. Existing Fortran source files can be added to the project using the usual Windows file opening dialogue. These files can be edited using the built-in Fortran-aware editor, which can also be used to create new files. The editor uses colour coding of syntax elements to make the source code more readable and features keyword completion.
Building projects using the Fortran Builder is amazingly simple. A click of the build button and that is all. Subsequent builds only recompile files that have been updated. And if the default options are not suitable, it's simple to change them using project settings.
Incorporated in Fortran Builder is a GUI debugger to help solve any runtime problems. The debugging system makes quick work of correcting code allowing the user to get back to the work in hand.
Fortran Builder compiles and automatically links with an appropriate, licensed NAG Fortran Library or NAG Library for SMP & Multicore implementation. It also comes with precompiled LAPACK Libraries.
The help system within Fortran Builder not only gives general advice but also will suggest the right compiler options for your scenario. It also includes an extensive Fortran language guide.
