View Full Version : fortran gui

Sep 28, 2010, 09:22 PM

I have been programming with visual basic on windows for a while now and was hoping to move onto fortran (mainly because of lots of old code) on a mac. I have gfortran and g95 already, and it seems to work well.

I was wondering if anyone knew a good and simple (imp!) way to create GUIs for fortran code on a mac, like visual basic on windows? I have heard about Xcode, but that does not seem as intuitive as VB.

Hi, it has not yet been tested on Mac, but it should work. Let me know.

The objective of the gtk-fortran project is to offer Fortran programmers a crossplatform library to build Graphical User Interfaces (GUI). Gtk-fortran is a GTK+ / Fortran binding entirely written in Fortran. It is based on the ISO_C_BINDING module for interoperability between C and Fortran, which is a part of the Fortran 2003 standard. GTK+ is a free software crossplatform graphical library available for Linux, Unix, Windows and MacOs X.

The home page of the project is https://github.com/jerryd/gtk-fortran/wiki

In its devel branch, gtk-fortran offers currently an interface to more than 8100 GTK+ functions (GTK, GDK, GdkPixbuf, Cairo, Pango). It is not complete but covers probably more than 85% of GTK, GDK, GdkPixbuf, Cairo and Pango. These interfaces were automatically created by a python script which parses the C header files of the GTK+ libraries.
