CoCo is a preprocessor for Fortran originally specified by Part 3 of the Fortran standard. CoCo is aware of Fortran line and statement rules, and supports the usual features of a preprocessor: file inclusion and conditional compilation. CoCo is more structured than other preprocessors, requiring declaration of all symbols used. CoCo supports Fortran assertions, generic programming, software testing, and has features to support large projects.
