    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone can show me how to install Fortran90 (compilers...etc) on my computer. By the way I have the intel MBP running on leopard.

    Thank you very much,

    David

    I would recommend g95 from www.g95.org. The developer is, I've been told, a real dick, and it is not GPL, but it us much further along than gfortran. There is a binary distribution for OS X.

    G95 is licensed under the GPL. Check the COPYING file.

    My mistake. I guess the rift with the GCC folk was purely ideological, then. On the gfortran page about this they state that they forked the GPL version of the code in 2003, I thought that sort of implied it changed, but you're right.
