Welcome to F Programming Language page

Introduction F programming language

This programming language was started by numbers of Fortran veteran, It was designed by selecting powerful numerical features of Fortran 90 and 95. F is a example of compiled language, structured language and array programming language. It is mainly useful in education and scientific computing. Like Fortran, F also support module oriented programming. Benefit of F module : It is easy to read and understand.

Some features of F language

  • Arrays
  • Control constructs
  • Data types
  • Formatting
  • Input output features
  • Modules, procedures, and program units
  • Operators and assignment
  • Source form

F example source code

A simple program in F that calculate square of a number

program square_numb
real :: value, answ
print *, "Enter a number, to get it square:"
read *, value
answ = value*value
print * , next_guess
end program square_numb

F programming language resources

F is widely used in education and scientific sector mainly not many help is available except few books and forum.
