Preprocessing Fortran Source with CoCo

Date and Time: 
2013 Tuesday, April 2
CG1 Auditoriums

Authors: Daniel Nagle

CoCo is a preprocessor specifically intended for Fortran source. (CoCo stands for Conditional Compilation.) CoCo was originally defined by Part 3 of the Fortran Standard, since withdrawn. This implementation includes several extensions. These include a syntax derived from free form source, line wrapping when lines are expanded beyond 132 characters, and several editing features specifically intended to enhance a Fortran programmer's set of tools. CoCo includes several features for error checking and program correctness. I discuss my implementation of CoCo, emphasizing how it enhances the Fortran programmer's toolkit.
