Got Fortran programs? I have worked with Fortran for over 20 years, both at MIT and for 15 years at the U.S. Army as part of my job at ERDC-CRREL as an electrical engineer specializing in electromagnetics. While Fortran is fast, and legacy Fortran code can be very reliable, Fortran is being supplanted by more modern languages such as Matlab, R, and Python. To help with the transition, I wrote f2matlab (free version online) which translates Fortran source code into Matlab source code. For large and/or critical programs or when translating to R or Python, contact me. I can provide assistance. I have worked with codes such as DSSAT crop modeler, MFIX multiflow simulator, and the slatec mathematical library
