Approximatrix Simply Fortran 2.17 Build 1749

A complete and comprehensive solution for Fortran developers of all levels that need an easy to use tool with an integrated debugger
Programming languages are used to create both simple and complex applications which allow us to use the computer for communication, scientific experiments or entertainment. Although it is not among the most popular languages at the moment, Fortran is still used for creating scientific applications.

Approximatrix Simply Fortran aims to provide you with a development environment which is able to edit code, compile it and debug programs. These components should be enough for the developers who need to create and test their projects.

When you start the program for the first time you can view a list of examples that can be used to get started. The beginners can also access an extensive documentation which explains all the program features.

The code editor supports syntax highlighting for Fortran and other programming languages which include C++, Lua, Python and Assembly. The autocomplete function is available for modules and module components which can help you when creating complex programs.

Although the program does not support skins, the programmers can customize the text colors and font size in order to create a comfortable working environment. The left side panel can be of help when you need to search for modules, browse the project files or find all occurrences of a command.

Once you have written the code, the Build menu allows you to launch it or clean the code before building the program. The debugger includes the ability to add breakpoints and monitor certain expressions while running the program.

An useful feature is the Toolbox which includes the external tools that you need to use in your development. You just need to specify the executable and command line parameters in order to add it to the menu.

Overall, Approximatrix Simply Fortran provides you with a modern interface for creating and test Fortran applications.

What's New in This Release:
  • This latest release incorporates some small feature additions and bug fixes requested and reported by users. Autocomplete boxes which pop up while editing source code now include images based on each entry's type. The editor now supports "block selection" mode, allowing users to highlight and cut/copy rectangular regions within their code. Network license entry supports explicit entry of a user's identity for better security. All code in the editor matching the current selection is now indicated in a subtle dotted outline to better illustrate matching text. The indexing procedure for currently opened tabs has been optimized slightly, providing slightly better performance. Additional warnings will be displayed when users attempt to save Fortran source code with certain problematic extensions. Unchecking static linking now unchecks all suboptions as well. A user-reported bug related to paths with spaces under certain filesystem configurations has been corrected. A possible source of intermittent crashes when starting the debugger has been eliminated.
