    "A community of developers has formed to modernize the Fortran
    ecosystem. In this article, we describe the high-level features of
    Fortran that continue to make it a good choice for scientists and
    engineers in the 21st century. Ongoing efforts include the development
    of a Fortran standard library and package manager, the fostering of a
    friendly and welcoming online community, improved compiler support, and language feature development. The lessons learned are common across contemporary programming languages and help reduce the learning curve
    and increase adoption of Fortran."

    Does the State of Fortran border the State of California???

    If it does border California... instead of The Bear Flag Republic, the
    State of Fortran would be the "...and sometimes the bear gets you!"
    republic. ;-)

    I would think that the State of Fortran would border Alaska. Or Idaho.

    Surely the State of Fortran is really like the State of Tasmania: a remote community out on a limb by itself. But if its ferry to Melbourne is the analogue of interoperability with C then Victoria is the State of C. Or would Americans insist that because
    Fortran first appeared in USA the State of Fortran is Hawaii?

    The Bard's words are ever so apt .. Denmark is more like it ..

    So simple and practical and promising so much more and yet *something is rotten in the State of Fortran* - ALWAYS!

    No wonder then this State has characters like OP who tortured netizens for ages with blurbs about nonstandard, rotten "F77"" and zero initialization and a whole load of other inanities and never took good counsel and who now continues with the mess that
    F2C produces while lamenting about breaking on 457th call when the option is readily available, not that different metaphorically from the chaos and sorrow and death Claudius leaves all around Denmark ..

    How about the State of Antarctica ?
