Welcome to the September 2021 edition of the monthly Fortran newsletter. The newsletter comes out at the beginning of every month and details Fortran news from the previous month.
This month we’ve had several updates to the website:
Let us know if you have any suggestions for the website and its content. We welcome any new contributors to the website and the tutorials page in particular - see the contributor guide for how to get started.
Here’s what’s new in stdlib:
charactertype with fypp
disp(display your data)
Please help improve stdlib by testing and reviewing pull requests!
The candidate for file system operations to be included in stdlib is being developed by @MarDiehl and @arjenmarkus in this repository. Please try it out and let us know how it works, if there are any issues, or if the API can be improved.
Here’s what’s new in fpm:
git initin fpm new when backfilling
fpm is still in early development and we need as much help as we can get.
Here’s how you can help today:
The short-term goal of fpm is to make development and installation of Fortran packages with dependencies easier. Its long term goal is to build a rich and decentralized ecosystem of Fortran packages and create a healthy environment in which new open source Fortran projects are created and published with ease.
Here is what is new in FFTPACK:
(i)qct/dcosqi/dcosqf/dcosqbinterfaces for quarter wave data.
(i)rfft/dffti/dfftf/dfftbinterface and ready to move to
Feedback and ideas for this project are welcome.
Recent development updates:
Call notes are recorded and available upon request here. Please contact Alexis Perry-Holby at firstname.lastname@example.org for document access.
