Compaq Visual Fortran: A Guide to Creating Windows Applications is the only book that shows developers how to create Windows applications using Visual Fortran software. It complements Digital Press's successful reference, the Digital Visual Fortran Programmer's Guide. Lawrence details development methods and techniques for creating Fortran applications for Windows, the platform upon which developers can use Compaq Visual Fortran (CVF; to be Intel Visual Fortran in the future) to create applications. The book teaches CVF programming progressively, beginning with simple tasks and building up to writing professional-level Win32 applications. Readers will learn about the powerful new CVF graphical user interface, as well as the intricacies of Windows development from a CVF perspective. They can master QuickWin, the Win32 APIs including multiple document interfaces, and Open GL with 3D and interactive graphics.
