Benefits of continuing Fortran standardisation
If you use Fortran, directly or indirectly, please will you complete this survey:
It has been developed by the committee of the BCS Fortran Group to quantify the value of modern Fortran standards to organisations and individuals. The results of the survey will help the Group justify continuing involvement in Fortran standardisation efforts.
The results of the survey will be shared with the ISO Fortran standardisation committee, so your responses will help shape the future of the Fortran language.
The survey will run until 31 Dec. 2018.
The Fortran language has been steadily developing since its origins in 1957. Many people have been working on revising the Fortran specification, resulting in Fortran 77, 90, 95, 2003, 2008 and 2018 standards. This survey is designed to find out exactly what benefits newer Fortran standards bring to the community.
We would like to know how newer Fortran standards have increased the quality of your code, cut development costs, increased portability or performance of your code, or whether you can attach any monetary value to the benefits enabled by modern Fortran standards.
This questionnaire contains 4 sections. All questions are optional. It will take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
