QuoteTL;DR: If you have higher ease of use, popularity, performance (without having to pay extra for it), and interoperability -- what do you need Fortran for?If you like Matlab, Python with Numpy, or R because operations on whole arrays and array sections are convenient, and because allocating and passing multidimensional arrays to functions is simple, then when you need a compiled language, why not choose one that also has those features? Modern Fortran does.

Modern Fortran does.AFAIK Matlab seems to be built atop Fortran.In the past one reason for moving away from Fortran (e.g. graphics and CAD) to C was the latter's inability to support upcoming OSs like UNIX, DOS and OS/2.

For people who know Python, one way to get a sense of modern Fortran is to look at the Python Fortran Rosetta Stone http://www.fortran90.org/src/rosetta.html .QuotePython with NumPy and Fortran are very similar in terms of expressiveness and features. This rosetta stone shows how to implement many common idioms in both languages side by side.

I lost interest in FORTRAN when they got rid of HOLLERITH cards. Good old days.
