    Brief Overview of plusFORT

    There is much in plusFORT that cannot be found anywhere else. More
    detail, including video tutorials and an online manual, can be found at www.fortran.uk. plusFORT supports all standards up to Fortran 2003, as
    well as VAX Fortran, and many other extensions. It can be used from the command line, or using PFFE, our intuitive GUI front-end.

    Code Modernization

    * Source code restructuring and spaghetti unscrambler
    * Source form conversion
    * Automatically generates declarations to allow use of IMPLICIT NONE
    * Translates declarations to and from Fortran 2003 form
    * Automatically adds INTENT to argument declarations
    * Over 100 configurable options to customize code transformation

    Code Instrumentation

    * Automatically insert probes to analyse CPU usage
    * Dynamic Analysis. Inserts probes to identify illegal use of
    uninitialized data (much more thorough than compile-time checks).
    * Coverage Analysis. Inserts probes to identify execution hotspots, and
    code-blocks which remain untested through a series of runs.

    Static Analysis

    * HTML reports (with extensive crosslinks between reports) showing usage
    and problems relating to
    - subprograms
    - subprogram arguments
    - modules and module variables
    - COMMON blocks and variables
    - PARAMETERs
    - local variables
    * Hyperlinked HTML call tree

    Modularization

    * Analysis of legacy Fortran code in preparation for conversion to
    modular structure.
    - Internalization - shows subprograms and COMMON blocks that
    could be internal (i.e. CONTAINed within another executable
    subprogram)
    - Cluster Analysis - identifies subprograms and data structures
    which could be combined in a module.

    HyperKWIC

    * A complete refresh of the traditional KWIC (KeyWord In Context)
    report.
    * Every occurrence of every user symbol is hyperlinked, to allow users
    to skip back and forth between reports and source code.

    @John Appleyard,

    Kudos, plusFORT looks very interesting and helpful for users of Fortran.

    Would you please also consider the Fortran Discourse site https://fortran-lang.discourse.group/ that has an increasing following? You may want to announce plusFORT there and perhaps also extend the same offer to readers there?

    Best wishes,

    Thanks for the tip - I have done as you suggest.
