I will soon start programming with DIGITAL Fortran V6 developer studio at Univ and would like to install the same software in my machine at home. I have been told that in order to create and debugg projects from a FORTRAN environment I need to have MS Visual C ++ Version 6 installed in my PC, can anyone let me know if this is correct? I don't fully understand how these two interact and would therefore appreciate any help you can offer.
I also have a concern regarding the windows version I am running at home vs the windows version at univ. Most of the PCs at Univ run windows 2000, I will be running XP at home, would Digital Fortran still run fine on windows XP?
Thanks a lot in advance.
