Webinar: Verification and Modernization of Fortran Codes using the NAG Fortran Compiler

Thursday, September 13, 2018


Online Webinar 15:00hrs BST / 16:00hrs CEST

Fortran remains the dominant programming language of scientific computation and HPC, and is likely to be for the foreseeable future. Advances in compiler technology and techniques have yielded huge performance gains for Fortran codes. However, there is very little emphasis on correctness and language standards compliance. The NAG Fortran Compiler was designed with a strong emphasis on correctness and adherence to the language standard, as well as providing additional features for modernizing legacy codes. This webinar will show how the NAG Fortran Compiler can be used to write correct and performance portable code which is not always possible with other compilers. By strictly adhering to the language standard, this makes the code portable to other compilers.

This webinar will show you:

  1. How to detect errors in code using the NAG Fortran Compiler;
  2. How to use the precision unifying feature to avoid subtle precision bugs;
  3. Real world errors detected by the NAG Fortran Compiler;
  4. How to modernize legacy Fortran 77 code to modern Fortran;
  5. How to incorporate the NAG Fortran Compiler into your code development workflow.
