Fortran Compilers

g77 doesn't work on intel macs. You have several other fortran options in fink and elsewhere:


This is the official gnu successor to g77, and you can install it with fink. Fink now has a working version of gfortran. To get it, you must install the fink gcc43 package.


Another option is g95, and this can often be used as a drop-in replacement for g77. For example, I was able to get fftw, pgplot, and a few other things that required g77 to compile and work with g95, just by doing a global search and replace.

What is currently in fink works on intel.


fort77 is a perl wrapper for g2c, also allowing it to be a drop-in replacement (sometimes) for g77. Several programs will compile using this option if they find it but not g77.
