Oracle Solaris Studio: Where is the FORTRAN 77 Compiler?

(Doc ID 1007088.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Solaris Studio - Version Forte Developer 6 Update 2 to 12.3 [Release 6.0 to 12]
All Platforms


When the Fortran 77 compiler is called via "f77", this actually calls the Fortran 90 compiler:

% /opt/solstudio12.2/bin/f77
NOTICE: Invoking /opt/solstudio12.2/bin/f90 -f77 -ftrap=%none
usage: f90 [ options ] files.  Use 'f90 -flags' for details

Where is the Fortran 77 compiler?


The problem exists in Sun ONE Studio 7, Compiler Collection, and newer.
