    Default HowTo Learn (by doing) FORTRAN in OpenSuSE

    Hi All: I need to get into FORTRAN under OpenSuSE/Linux and need to avoid doing that by command-line. Is there a highly newbie-friendly IDE that could be recommended? I tried Eclipse for OSEE but eclipse is SO flexible with SO many confusing features that you can fall into many, many setup traps (I didn't get OSEE running in days of repeated attempts). I'm looking for something like Visual Studio or Kylix/Delphi, etc.

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi
    A text editor? There is SciTE....Scintilla and SciTE (only because I package/maintain it )

    Maybe Photran - An Integrated Development Environment and Refactoring Tool for Fortran

    I use this on occasions on my SLED system
    Oracle Solaris Studio

    Thank you Knurpht and Malcom - Code::Blocks (the FORTRAN edition here: CodeBlocks IDE for Fortran ) installed instantly (no installation, really) and was intuitive enough to let me recursively open the directory tree containing all the code, and recognized symbols, modules, etc. So I guess it's Code::Blocks.

    Now I find I'm mainly stumbling on syntax and symbols (language differences from basic, pascal, and other languages I've done). I know about most of programming but need some basic syntax of how these are implemented in FORTRAN, as well as maybe some more advanced stuff I haven't used before, like symbols and namespaces. Most of the books I've found are actually "introduction to programming" and just happen to be in FORTRAN, rather than concise FORTRAN for those who know (more or less) other languages.

    Again, thanks, and do you have any suggestions? Maybe even an online resource?

    Did you look at Metcalf et. al.: fortran 95/2003 explained?
    There is a more recent version of it: Modern Fortran explained
    which I do not know myself
